With Linda Asamoah and Keyla at Face of Africa Germany.
I first met her in April 2014 at Face of Africa Germany Beauty Pageant. She was on the beauty team and I was a member of jury.
Months later I decided to do a perm after ten years of being a naturalista. I needed a professional who could handle afro hair. A friend recommended her. I gave her a call and found out we only live a few minutes apart.
She gave me an exclusive first appointment: I was the only client for the day, thus enough time for her to concentrate on me. I need not say I was satisfied with the final product.

More impressive is the atmosphere in Keyla Afro-Latino Salon. It opens a window into Afro-Latino Germany. Hairdressing to Latino Charts amidst a joyous friendly and vibrant crew. For the first time I met women from the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Venezuela etc living in Germany. I learned a few batchata steps, salsa and merengue moves. I savored meals from the Dominican Republic; they taste like what I know from West Africa. My Spanish is still very rudimentary, but the motivation to learn has been awaken.
I now have a glimpse of the demographics of Afro-Latino Germany through my interaction with these beautiful people.

Its a shame I completely left them out in my previous posts. Africa is a multifaceted continent with its descendents in every corner of the globe. And Afro- Latino Germany is a part of this beautiful diversity I now enjoy. Thank you Keyla.
