like him most of the time.) ;)

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ok, I'll try and be a little serious here. I was born and raised in
Brazil by a Brazilian mom and a French dad. Most people don't think
I look like a Brazilian - probably because they don't know Brazil
is much more than the pretty tanned carioca girls they dream of -
but yes, I'm a Brazilian that does not play soccer. I'm also a bit
French - et oui... - and always enjoyed coming to France for
vacation as a kid. This probably explains why I'm a little
messed-up when it comes to nationality: if you ask me if I feel
more Brazilian or French, I'll reply neither one nor the other. Of
course I'm proud to be part of two countries and will always be
connected to Brazil - where my parents still live - and France -
where I do live now - but I always preferred to go see what other
places looked like instead of running back "home". As if home was
somewhere else I'm supposed to find.
This search for home has taken me to several places, and to be
honest I'm not sure I'll find it. It does not bother me, as it
seems that the fun part of it is precisely not knowing what you're
looking for. However, in the past few years I did get to know one
thing: wherever I am, I really appreciate being among foreigners. I
also realized one other thing: wherever I'll go next, I'm having a
great time in Paris - I guess that after some years of
metro-boulot-dodo I finally managed to live only the very best of
this city, avoiding all the grumpy Parisians in the metro - lucky
Hence, while I don't go see what's happening somewhere else, I'm
making the most out of Paris, preferably with foreigners that have
the same mindset. And because we're all busy workers, I wondered
the web would be a nice way to meet people on the same wavelength.
What's your frequency?
