My favorite waste of time

Fatoumata Diawara

My great passion for archaeology, travel, mountains and learning foreign languages (Latin, Greek, Arabic, Russian) has led me to many places in Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus region. I am always in for a game backgammon or chess.

I am really into music and visit concerts, dance nights and pop festivals on a regular basis. In January I went to see a spoken word performance by Henry Rollins in the NT Gent, one of my great inspirations. I put some of my many playlists on iTunes.

For a couple of years in live in the centre of Amsterdam in a shared living community. For cooking I get my inspiration mainly from Mediterranean cuisine, with a mix of Arabian, Italian, Spanish and mezze recipes. I eat mainly biological vegetarian food.

In The Hague I saw a concert by Fatoumata Diawara. Her happy sounds will no doubt warm every one's heart.
