Bouquiner :  » Petit pays » Gaël Faye

Je ne vais pas vous faire une revue classique de ce roman. Tout le monde, ou presque, l’a lu, et tout le monde en a entendu parler. J’ai envie de vous parler de ce livre plus intimement. J’ai envie de vous expliquer pourquoi Petit Pays m’a bouleversée.

Je lis depuis toujours, mon père nous a toujours répété qu’on ne pouvait pas s’ennuyer puisqu’on savait lire. Alors lire est devenu mon activité préférée. J’ai adoré, aimé, détesté des tas de personnages de romans. Pas toujours le héros ou l’héroïne, j’ai souvent eu un faible pour les personnages secondaires. Ceux dont on parle moins mais qui comptent beaucoup.

Quand j’ai commencé Petit Pays, j’ai su que cette fois-ci quelque chose serait différent. Dès les premières pages, j’ai eu le coeur qui battait plus fort.

There is since one or two years now, a very nice place in Gisenyi. It is clearly a must-go when you are in town. Calafia café is a little gem . The atmosphere , the decoration, the coffee, the pastries, everything here is always perfect and delicious. The waiters are lovely. The cafe is located near Grande Barrière. It is a old house which has been « pimped » . The feeling when you arrive is that you are now in a little oasis.

The Beach house in Gisenyi ( Airbnb )

I love Airbnb. When we arrived in 2014, this service was almost unavailable. Since then , hopefully for me, the offer has increased. What I love with Airbnb is to have the comfort of a home and this feeling that you live there… Even if it is for 3 days only. With kids it is really great, you can follow their rythm, they have more place to play and can make more noise. With friends also ( for the exactly same reasons 🙂 ).
