Europe – 2012
I was already a grown-up, but I still got annoyed with the old rhymes: “Luís, Luís has broken his nose”, or the more frequent one “Luís, Luís has been to Paris” – that one would be mighty annoying, as it got me so indignated. First, because I never found it funny, and then because it was not true. I’d say “…never been to Paris man!” Aside from all that, there’s the fact that France is one of the most visited countries in the world. My wish to see that country has always been a mix of a wish to solve my childhood trauma with a wish to let myself fall in love with that “trés chique” lifestyle movies got me dreaming about.
