When Betty thinks about Africa it is the weather she misses most, and her family and friends. She talks about her dreams before she came to Europe and the realities of life as an African migrant in Europe.

She remembers her first day in Europe: "On my first day in Europe, when I arrived at the airport the most important thing was I was the only one with a darker colour. Everyone was so white and I didn't even know where to go, but I already knew that I was in Europe .... It was a little scary."


Surprising Europe can be seen each week at the following times GMT: Monday: 2230; Tuesday: 0930; Wednesday: 0330; Thursday: 1630.
