what's up?

new passport

Tomorrow, I can fetch my new passport. I applied for it 10 days ago and wow! this was quite an experience. You start applying online, organize a date and time, pick your 15 minutes slot, go there, get a picture done -I am not sure whether they do an iris picture ,too – fingerprints and then you pay and after 5 minutes you are done and will get a new shiny Swiss passport, within about ten days. While the picture is done, in a little cabin, you can actually give your input, whether you like the look. I was seriously tempted to smile, but you are not allowed to show any teeth. I do not know why this is.

Thus, early this morning, I was going through my wallet, searching for the piece of paper that proves that I paid. Today’s picture shows you what I found in my wallet. It is a snapshot, with some insights. Like: I like gummy bears, travel to Paris a lot, go to the gym, have little cash, was once in Harrod’s, and have health insurance. Everybody does in Switzerland, actually. Interesting…. I wonder what other people’s wallet contents look like.

I am looking forward to getting my new passport, and using it after landing in London, September 8, for an event September 9, at Les Senteurs. It will be the first time that I get analog feedback to my Gardenia, meeting face to face, nose to nose with perfume lovers and talking about the fragrance. I haven’t decided yet what I want to say there. I always wonder what perfume lovers wish to know. Thus, wishing you a lovely start into your new week, I dare asking you…. what would you like to hear about Gardenia sotto la luna, if you went to London?
