Me and Cristina, we met when we were 7 years old. I saw this mulatta girl at school and since then we had to be friends forever.
We studied at school together, played in a basketball team and went to the art school together. We missed choir lessons playing in the garden or on the snowy hill in winter. We dreamed about her future travel to Africa together and about other things...Actually we were inseparable until we graduated from university and worked some time in different departments of the same hotel. Cristina is the person with whom I laugh most of all. We know each other so well...


Now, we live in thousands of kilometres one from each other.
