Having still not a clue, I now save money and the world by working in development aid, or more prosaicly by sitting behind a desk in this beautiful city.
I've lived in China and in Italy before, I take pictures, play music, cook French pastry, dance salsa, denigrate technology in order to sound smarter and have a secret nostalgia of the time full of certitudes where I was studying Mathematics.
My favorite English-speaking author is Henry James (I like the way he confronts both sides of the Atlantic); I also like Hemingway's short stories, Conrad's adventureness, Garcia Marquez' magic atmospheres, Mishima's tortured characters...
Movies: I never find the courage to watch great movies, so I end up watching stupid ones, which I cannot name here.
Music: I play the viola, so when I feel like hearing some music I play it.
Food: I guess it's what I miss most from France... I cook a lot, too much for my arteries but too little for my palate.
A good book
My good old Leica M6 to take pictures in style
