Two years ago I was waking up on the 22nd of October in an amazing smell of croissant and coffee…in my very first morning in Paris.
After having spent a night (wondering why the f**k did I ever decide to leave those amazing people back, the ones calling me from home, the ones that brought me to the airport, the ones calling and texting to ckech if I was ok….) in my then-to-be-new flat in the city I fell in love with very very soon, ma Karine woke me up for breakfast. The room was full with flowers, with some of her friends, because it was a special day. Besides the fact that it was my very first day in Paris. It was her birthday.
Last year this very same day I was sitting in the meeting room in Alcatel-Lucent’s HQ office on the 5th floor, planning my Scandinavia Trip, calling Karin and singing happy birthday over the phone….dreaming about having one of what has become best trips to remember Copenhagen – Oslo – Stockholm- Uppsala- Paris….
This year, on this very same 22nd of October 2008 am sitting in my new office, thinking about added values of my work whilr trying to sole day-to-day stuff…while somewhere in Stockholm, my friend from Paris is celebrating her birthday today. Happy birthday Karine! Parisienne Karine!
22nd of October 2009? ……..
And a small present pour toi, pour l’anniversaire!
