In the Spring of 2019 I had the opportunity to spend a month in Wilson, beautiful small town in North Carolina.
Wilson was once the centre of tobacco cultivation in North Carolina, but has since transformed into a diverse, multicultural, active town, where the history, traditions and modern life are greatly blended. I would call Wilson a “loved town”—with so much love that one feels, while listening to the locals speak about their community.
In the month I spent in Wilson, I allowed myself to be absorbed by the community and the intricacies of its daily life. At first sight, this North Carolina jewel was deceptively quiet with its almost empty streets, but soon I began to feel the energy of the city. I met many wonderful, sincere and open-minded people, all of whom presented what Southern hospitality means
All the pictures I took during this amazing journey would fit just in one old proverb: “A place is only as good as the people in it.”
