Ever since this encounter -a somehow mysterious person, silently smiling, not trying to impress,
wise in a way- I wanted to go and see what his homeland was like.
Now that I finally had the occasion, I found it the same as him.

One evening in 2007, a group of friends decided to start off a collective project on European extend:
27 of us, by the time all students of the ENSP in Arles,
should depart in summer 2008 to one of the 27 countries of the European Union.

The project was called Europehophop and after its realisation exhibited all over Europe again.
The countries were distributed by random process.

I happened to pick Latvia, a country I had dreamt to visit for a long time.
