    Gretel, you come from Cuba. How long have you been in Luxembourg?

    I arrived in March 2001, just in time to experience the change from Luxembourg Francs to Euros.

    What reasons took you to Luxembourg?

    A very common answer: my husband got a good job offer here.

    What studies did you do and what is your main activity?

    I studied foreign languages (English and Italian) and Theater and Media Production. Now I’m a freelance photographer and a full time mother.

    Can you give me 3 adjectives to describe your life in Luxembourg?

    Hectic, full and artsy.

    What aspect of Luxembourg would you miss if you had to leave tomorrow?

    I can get everywhere in 10 minutes!

    What is your favourite district in Luxemburg?

    They are so many I can’t choose just one, I love Kirchberg because is like seeing a toddler growing, Clausen because it’s so pictoresque and Limperstberg because of the dreamy antique houses you see.

    Can you give me an exemple of a word in your mother tongue that is difficult to translate in another language?

    I can’t think of just a word, but several words that have different meanings in different contexts and depending on the intonation too.

    For which reason have you decided to join the JUST ARRIVED Ambassadeur Club ?

    I love talking about my countries : the native one Cuba and also Luxembourg, the one that has kindly adopted me all these years. And if this information can help someone it is really satisfactory.
