"Where is home? Not a simple question for someone who's moved again and again and again. From Brazil, to Canada, to the States, Samantha da Silva has moved almost 40 times - at first to find a better life, then sometimes because of metaphorical volcanoes, and once, a real one. In 2018 lava chased her and her husband from their Hawaii home.
