'Dunia duara' is Swahili for the world is round. The saying shouldn't be understood only literally as it carries layers of meaning. One could be: 'Take it easy - after all the world is round and everything revolves'. I found it a useful reminder to myself when moving between different places and people. To the curious person there's a wild pleasure in wide horizons and meeting new people - but there's also the pain of distance and disappearance when you move on. 

I believe in returning and repeating, in revolving.
