Who do you hope to be the next president of the United States?
Barack Obama, for unlike Clinton, he speaks of improving the relationship with South-America. This has been neglected the past couple of years. He publically stated that there is not one South-American president he wouldn’t speak to, even Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.
What is your image of Holland?
A girl with a pointy hat and a dress, in a field of tulips.
What national politician would you like to interview?
President Evo Morales, because I would like to get to know the person who theoretically wasn’t prepared to be president. Someone who doesn’t even have a bachelor’s degree but who is now president of a country in deep political, social and economical crisis.
What national trait would you expoert to the rest of the world?
The plainness of our people, without being huble. This makes us open-minded to every person, everywhere.
What national trait would you like to eliminate?
Racism, because it stops us from living in harmony and it hampers our development. Racism seeps its way into everything.
What will you be doing in ten years?
I would love to make a lot of movies in Bolivia and travel around the world.
