Two years ago, I spent my birthday on the other side of the world. Bogota was the farthest city in the world for me. It took a 35 hour journey for me to get there. That day, we walked in a garden and looked at flowers. When I was 12, I thought that when youContinue reading “M”

A Tiny Box
In March 2017, Marta, a former teacher of mine arrived in Lisbon. She had been to Colombia and told me that my friend Anna sent a package for me. When I had met Marta, she handed me a tiny woven box, that fit in my palm. In it was a note and a pair ofContinue reading “A Tiny Box”
A Curve in the Sky
I left Lisbon almost suddenly. My lease was up in a week, and my internship at Terratreme had just finished. Winter was leaving. I knew it because I began to sweat profusely during my bike rides to work – that never happens in the winter. In winter, I’d bike in the biting cold morning. EventuallyContinue reading “A Curve in the Sky”
Halloween In Brussels
It has become sort of a tradition, that we do a little Halloween get together. I can’t really say it’s tradition, because at this point, it had only been the second time we’ve done it.
Paris was good
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”
Two Weeks in Viana do Castelo
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”
Christmas Night 2015
I wrote this message last Christmas. Look! We’ve come this far. “I seem to want to write to you every chance I get! I must tell you how much I appreciate your patience with these things 🙂 Boa Tarde!”
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. If you live in an archipelago, crossing borders while driving is not an idea you entertain a lot, and for Yali, she says sheContinue reading “YUGOSLAVAN”
Budapest is Waiting
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”
From Far Away
I was surprised at how many people were already there. The train leaves at 07:45H so I arrived at Keleti very early.
In a Few Months
“I used to get a lot of sunsets like this back home but this one is special. You see, I’ve never experienced winter in my life. We have a lot of rain and often floods that devastate many of our lives. But winter is another thing. I don’t think anyone is ever ready to faceContinue reading “In a Few Months”
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.
The Train to Szentendre
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.
When Bappy became Chaplin
I think it was Sunday when I arrived at Bappy and Anja’s in Intendente.
A Month Ago We Were Strangers
I am back to studying and last month, I met my classmates.
