    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Usually we have dinner together except when I go to the choir on tuesday or when I have work in the late evening (I'm an estate agent). It is a good moment in the day to share and exchange.
    I'm always happy to have a helping hand in the kitchen, so that we can share cooking cultures :)
