Jogging (during the lockdown in France, I became more enthusiastic since this was the only way escaping my 18 square meter jail legally), traveling (sadly enough, now the entire world is against this…).

What is the most useless talent you have?
Getting stained on every single white clothes I wear.

Where is the worst smelling place you have been?
Local market in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where the nearby “river” was flooded with trash instead with water.

What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?
On April fool’s day, my friend told me that Mt. Fuji in Japan has exploded (with a very realistic video!) and I panic contacted my parents. This happened this year.

About which topics could you talk for hours?
One Piece (Best Anime in the world!), Japanese food (who doesn’t love sushi?), cultural difference between China and Japan (Don’t tell me you can’t tell the difference between the two! haha).
