Lorenzo & his humble friends

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool

Never will I

Never will I stop being amazed by the beautiful people I come across everywhere I go. Even within a very, very short timeframe in Bruxelles I met so many outstanding friends: all of them so different in their character and still so fascinating and compatible.

I do not know if I will come back to Belgium in 2013; but I am sure this won’t change. After all, I am very proud of the way I managed to let my friends from Spain, Ireland, Canada into my life. It  really was not easy at the beginning. But now I feel my choices are shaped by the people I have met along the way. They do not belong to my past: they are very much part of everything I do.
