The news caught my eye on Monday morning. Maybe it is because we are travelers, maybe it is because we were going to fly from Rio de Janeiro to Paris a just few months ago (we eventually bused back to Buenos Aires), or maybe it is because it was an Air France flight.
I Have just received the precious letter from Citizenship and Immigration: on June 11th, I’m invited to write my citizenship test.

And this is the second and last part of the “about me” photohunt!
The goal was to “take 10 photographs that represent you / things about you / your personality / likes / dislikes… I think ya catch my drift. Against each one, you need to write a comment to explain what is says about you.”
