a particular eye, a particular sensibility

The man walks the streets of New York.

He walks the streets of Brussels.

And streets in Nigeria.

He meets people, he observes and writes down. Hehe meets old and new friends, but he remains a wanderer. He sits down to talk with strangers and drinks a cup of coffee and he wonders about people, how they relate and where they belong. And where does he belong, with roots in different continents and countries. 

He walks the streets of his mind and he makes the open city and open mind. 

Teju Cole wrote “Open City”and Pragya Tiwari from “The Hindu” interviewed him.
