When we moved in to our new flat that’s a few meters short of being in the city, the first thing that I worried about was going home. There was one bus that took us straight to school. It wasn’t the shortest bus ride but over the past months, I enjoyed taking it.
I took very few photographs of Paris. I had V with me, an analog camera Krish bought at a cash converters shop fifty steps away from his house in Arroios. When he told me about V, I thought it was excessive. But 8 months into the future, V is my only companion on my wayContinue reading “Paris was good”
Last week, I found myself in Viana do Castelo again. I was there in transit, waiting for the next bus that would bring me further up north. It was the place where the fourth edition of DocNomads first had their fieldwork. It was, where we made our first films as a class. That was in theContinue reading “Two Weeks in Viana do Castelo”
This was what my new life looked like. I first saw it through a tiny window in an airplane. Two years ago, on New Year’s eve,
We went on a road trip last Easter, my friends and I. It was a long one, and we crossed country borders in a car. Yali and I were particularly ecstatic.

In January we moved to Budapest. It was winter and the first morning we spent in the city was one of the few days of snow. Winter was an exciting concept because I’ve never really experienced it but it was also very alien. It felt like the city was alien to me or, that IContinue reading “Budapest is Waiting”
I was surprised at how many people were already there. The train leaves at 07:45H so I arrived at Keleti very early.
Ingrid is back in Lisbon. At this moment, they might be having coffee at a kiosk near Gianluca’s house. I’m not there now, of course, so I tried to look for photographs of us from when I was in Lisbon.
We moved to Hungary last month. We had to get used to the place so we decided to get out of Budapest for a day.
I think it was Sunday when I arrived at Bappy and Anja’s in Intendente.
We were on our way home after a film when Pien said that the oldest Jazz place in Europe was in the area.
Jurg and I have been seeing rugby games the past couple of Saturdays.
