Music: a little bit of everything, depending on the mood. I
definitely enjoy classic rock and the beats of ACDC, Green Day and
Rage Against the Machine. I relax listening to vocal rock/jazz e.g.
John Mayer, Jack Johnson, James Blunt, Jason Mraz, Jose Gonzales,
Melody Gardot, Amy Winehouse, Norah Jones, Tina Dickow, Yael Naim,
etc. Blues is a passion, though I haven’t been listening much to it
(and Stevie Ray Voughan is a favorite)! Going out, who doesn’t like
David Guetta or Tiesto? And of course, Brazilian old school samba
for drinking a beer at a bar!
Food: I enjoy good food, and I enjoy preparing them as well! Eating
is part of traveling, and in every place I go I enjoy trying the
local food. My favorites are (in preference order) Italian - it’s
in the blood, French, Brazilian BBQ, Libanese, Sashimi (who doesn’t
like raw fish?!), Asian (we have to admit it’s a very rich food
culture), and Bavarian (south Germany, delicious). But there are so
much more that could be listed here…
I’m not a TV person, but enjoy watching movies once in a while.
Definitely like comedy movies on Sunday evenings. It’s hard to say
what I prefer in a movie, but I can say I hate watching a movie
that gets to its end and nothing really happened and you feel like
you just wasted your time.
