What’s your favorite place of all the places you’ve travelled?

 I would say Colombia. It is a very beautiful country with many different landscapes (Caribbean coast, forest, mountains, wetlands, etc.). People is very nice and the professionals are very good. It is a pleasure to travel there.


What’s your favorite thing to do on weekends?

Sleep, read, play music, and sing (I’ve did official music studies when I was young). I also sing in a chorus and sometimes we have the rehearsals during the weekend.
