A group distraction, presented by nige.


----------

The first instalment of Interview52 is now complete! It started on Friday 18th July 2008 and finished on 13th September 2009. A little later than expected, but we got there.


----------

52 mobloggers from around the world...

Some familiar, some not...

Each will publish a unique self-portrait, accompanied by a short interview.


Candid portrait meets candid interview.


The Rules

Every Friday the next interviewee in line will publish a new portrait and interview, consisting of their answers to the ten questions they have been given.

After they have published, the interviewee will then become the interviewer. They will be responsible for finding the next participant, as well as compiling the questions that this next person in line will answer. Interviewers can change as many or as few questions as they like, but they should change at least one before passing them on to the next lucky punter.

Thats it! Simple. More detailed instructions will be given to each interviewee as and when they are approached, so fear not.

1. Where does this find you? Tell us the story of how you got there.
This find me in Buenos Aires, Argentina, working as tourist guide.
I was born in Gualeguaychu, a very beautiful town located at 240 km from Buenos Aires, (on way to Cataratas falls).
I'm the youngest of 7 children. My mom died when I was 3, and I was adopted by an amaizing couple, and moved to Buenos Aires city.
When I finished highschool, I studied Tourism and started traveling arround my country and I lived almost a year in Foz do Iguazu (south of Brazil) when I was 23. There I met my father's son, and when I got pregnant I came back to Buenos Aires, where my son was born.
Then, I was 24, and I had to search for a permanent job. I started working as manager assistant at a Biotechnology lab, and was working there for 12 years Was very hard changing beautiful sceneries for an static view through a window, and the freedom of going from one place to another for the routine schedule of a full-time job at an office, but was a great experience and I met there not only my best friends, but also love. (perhaps the fact that my couple was my chief is a cliche, but still romantic).
Last year I resigned to that permanent job, and returned to tourism activity as tourist guide in this wonderful city of Buenos Aires. As I live in a 3rd world non economically stable country, and as any fortune-teller notified me about the mundial crisis of this year, probably mine was almost a kamikaze decision, but I'm still happy to try!

2. Why do you Moblog? How do you use the site?
Despite the fact that these days I don?t have enough time for Moblog, I love to be in contact with people of different countries and love photography.
And at moblog I found great people and terrific photographers.

3. What's your least favourite subject to talk about? Why?
Definitively financial stuff... they are boring, and I believe that accounters made of financial stuff something so complicated in order to justify their jobs.
When somebody try to explain me something related to financial's, my mind starts to travel arround (to all the nice places that I could visit if my financial?s were better!).

5. What's your most vivid memory from childhood?
I have lot of beautiful memories from childhood, let me tell you two related to perfumes:
-the smell of the lime trees on the back street of my home, where I used to meet my friends to play, or going arround.
-the picture of my mom in the kitchen, with the curlers in her hair, preparing every saturday evening the exquisite tomato sauce for "la pasta del domingo"...

6. What is your biggest fear?
Fear of heights.
I really want to try with parachuting in order to face my fear... (is it crazy?)

7. A picture or a thousand words?
A picture
One picture can tell us lot of things that thousand words can not describe...

8. What's wrong with the world today?
the politicians...

9. If you had ultimate control, how would you fix it?
I would force the politicians to live as the person who had the worst living situation on the earth.
Like this, they would make an effort to improve and transform it into a decent living situation.

10. Tell us a secret, something only you know
Mmhh... Do you believe me if I tell you that I don?t have any secret? (jeje)...
Well, I?m destroying this secret by sharing with you: last week I ate a chocolate that my son had bought for dessert, and I told him that was the dog (Sorry son! I love chocolates).

Love your answer to number 10! Really glad to see an interview from a longtime moblogger who we don't see too much of these days. Nice to know you're still out there.

CHESO says:

Hi Nige!!

How are you??

I´m so afraid that I didn´t have enough time for taking pictures and post them in moblog, and to share lot of things with mobloggers.
I hope to make up all these lost months!!
Kisses!

Hola chica!
Que linda esta imagen .. y tus palabres tambien
pero, el tema es...

Without moblog we'd never have met. You're a friend, a business partner and ocassional partner-in-crime. Without you my life would be poorer.

JokerXL says:

Wonderful Cheso!
Thank you for sharing, and I laughed out loud when I read #10.
Good luck to you and we're not jealous of your spring/summer at all (much).
As Taniwha says, Moblog will still be there for you when you've more time.

JockerXL and Factotum: Please, take pictures of snow! Here in Buenos Aires snowed only twice: in 1918 and last year... So you will be on spring and summer soon, but I wouldn´t enjoy snow at home! I ENVY you!!
