It's the name of Rosi's slum.
I was giving english lessons to those kids who don't have any access to education, who don't have any access to love. And I met Rosi.
She's 12 and proud to know the numbers in English. She told me that she learnt alone. I asked her to show me, then she did, from 1 to 10, but everytime she tried, she forgot the number 8. So we worked for a while on this number.
We walked around together in the streets looking for 8 things. We found 8 cats in 20 minutes. 8 empty plastic bottles on the floor. 8 trees next to a river. 8 persons waiting for a train that would take them to Jakarta.
We found many 8 things. And now I know that she will never forget the number 8 again because we can find many 8 things when we're looking for it.
