I have not been around for a long time... Since January, to be more precise. But I promise that I will be back soon. I am still in Costa Rica, in the last weeks of my masters program in Gender and Peace Building at the University for Peace (UPEACE). There is so much to do and to think about that I almost forgot my blog. Today I learnt about my friend Karla Santos´s blog (dublinenses2008.blogspot.com)and just loved it! This is just a quick text to say that I am still around, learning and living in a speed that reminds me of my time in New York City (1994-1997), where everyday was different from the previous one, and that in every corner you found a new surprise.
Escolhi este nome para o blog após assistir ao filme "Exílios", do diretor argelino Tony Gatlif, e ter me emocionado com a personagem Naïma, vivido pela atriz Leila Makhlouf. "Sou estrangeira em minha própria terra", ela falou.
