When I ask Djippi if I can take his picture, his boss starts teasing at him: “Told ya! You look just like a pirate!" The Pirate. This is how the kids call him at the school cafeteria. "I'm the main attraction at school, every day kids ask me to bring my hook." That image hovers in my mind's eye and while we speak I can picture a parrot, an eye patch and sa word topped off with a loud throaty laugh. That's it, suddenly I'm in Never-never Land and it turns out Captain Hook is a joyful Parisian. Whether you believe in fairytales or not, I can guarantee I left Djippi utterly enchanted.
