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.
