Typically, you wrote with such enthusiasm for the scheme that you made this escape seem like the brightest of opportunities. I had no choice but to bide my time and serve my sentence. The final months – the period following your supposed departure from Africa – were a constant battle to avoid plunging into depression, all my strength concentrated on refusing myself the easy slide into self-pity. The boy was dead, the mother anguished, and you and the children had embarked on a perilous journey.
Crossing the border, a repeat of my earlier disaster. A patrol of Libyan soldiers came across us by chance, and once again I suffered the indignity of arrest and transportation, this time to a detention centre named Misratah. It was another hellhole, the inmates a mixture of Ethiopians, Eritreans and Somalis, men and women, the elderly down to the new-born, packed seventy to each windowless cell. We had blankets for beds, overflowing toilets, meagre rations and dirty water, no medicines to treat the cases of malaria and diarrhoea and TB.
Six weeks of this purgatory. Every few days the guards would line us all up and read out lists of names of detainees to be deported. Sometimes, filled with the thought that I was following in your footsteps, I felt a fiery determination to fight on, to complete this journey regardless of where it eventually took me. At other times, when the task of locating you seemed altogether hopeless, I felt resigned to a return to Asmara and to the vengeance of that unforgiving family. Together with two fellow countrymen, I began to plan my escape, a hazardous breakout involving decoy fires and the scaling of a fence topped with razor wire.
