About Me


I try not to leave too many negative traces on this earth.


I am traveling a lot. In 2017 it's in the USA from August 27 to October 9, then Far East from December till April

I'm 69 years old.
I'm retired since July 5, 2008.
I have a lot of plans: Travelling, serious photography, cultural and social engagements...
I lost my wife in 2013.


I wanna have a decent life and be as valuable as possible to my little world
