I met her in a hotel that she had picked for the interview, a very beautiful hotel in the centre of Athens, overlooking from its roof garden the Acropolis and from the other side the lycabettus hill… As she was telling me her story, she must have admired the view more than 5 times and took a couple of pictures that truly expressed her romantic and delicate heart. She says how can one be sad or miserable when there are so many beautiful things and place all around us…
