Books-- 19 century + early 20th, most notably Bulgakov, Dickens,
Kafka, Duma, Tolstoy... Phantom etc, science (indeed, not very
selective or related :))
Movies- a huge list, not so picky: modern classics of all kinds:
thrillers, action, comedies (EXCLUDING sitcoms and their
relatives), history, philosophy, humour even some scarry movies-
all depending on my mood...
Music: Classics, 80's, Rock. I am never systematic about arts\music
Traveling: prefer the cooler places (Switzerland, Scandinavia,
England) because of where i am coming from (Israel). Hate using
maps (which is very strange given my field of research). In secret,
I must admit I enjoy pre-modern European history, when people were
much more diverse and less trivial.
(Quality) Food- yes, i respect it. Now I have to cook alone for
myself, for I loath fast food and cannot eat out forever.
