Love life, speaking foreign languages, and my woman! The south of France (le cote d'azur) is a beautiful place. Close to Italy, Monaco, Cannes, living on the beach (the Mediterranean is so very deep blue) at the foot of the alps, ski resorts are less than an hour away, this is a fantastic place. Weather great as well!
One of my favorite travel destinations: Myanmar (Burma) another world
Favorite books: The Thousand and One Nights, Don Quixote de la Mancha, Cien Anios de Soledad. A New Earth
Favorite movie : Godfather
Motto (from Theodore Roosevelt) "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than it is to take rank with those poor spirits, who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat."
