Switzerland is a very rich country but not full of rich people. Lot of people are normal people, like me and more are working poor (15% of the population)
I took this photograph this summer during a the Peru National Holiday.
The occasion for thousand of latino-americans to have good time.
This people work hard during the week and most of the time being "clandestinos" .. illegal strangers, living in the fear to be catched.
So,as the flag is Geneva is in background of this photo, I wanted to paid tribute to this great people who raise our children, who clean our houses, who cook in our restaurants, etc.
It seems they are more or less 5000 (Geneva : 500 000 people).
Would be cool if we legalize lot of them I think..
That's the Geneva I like, the multicultural Geneva
Oh.. a detail.. my parents when they emigrated from the poor and dictatorial Spain leaded by the sinister Francisco Franco have been illegal strangers during some years and workin hard
