"NEW LIFE !!!!!" 1W1V's Profile

Camille has landed !!

You don't need to be big and tall to change the life of somebody.
Since March 19, 2008, I have drastically changed the life of my mom and dad !
I have become the center of their attention and they are making all their plans according to me.
I am Camille (pls pronounce KAMIYE), I am a girl and I am Eurasian.

Have I made the right ones ???? I think I have !

Always a challenging exercice to talk about yourself.
So, let's say that I was born to travel, to enjoy life and as much as I can, to help people improving their daily life in some of the poorest part of this world.
But, all of these has changed since Nov. 2001. Don't worry, I am still travelling !!!!!!
This is my drug.

Last but not least, I am Belgian but I live in Jordan.

Un poème d'Arthur Rimbaud pour tous les VTers

Ma Bohème

Je m' en allais, les poings dans mes poches crevées;
Mon paletot aussi devenait idéal;
J' allais sous le ciel, Muse! et j' étais ton féal;
Oh! là là! que d' amours splendides j' ai rêvées!

Mon unique culotte avait un large trou.
— Petit-Poucet rêveur, j' égrenais dans ma course
Des rimes. Mon auberge était à la Grande-Ourse.
— Mes étoilles au ciel avaient un doux frou-frou.

Et je les écoutais, assis au bord des routes,
Ces bons soirs de septembre où je sentais des gouttes
De rosée à mon front, comme un vin de vigueur;

Où, rimant au millieu des ombres fantastiques,
Comme des lyres, je tirais des élastiques
De mes souliers blessés, un pied près de mon coeur!

My Bohemian life

I went off with my hands in my torn coat pockets ;
My overcoat too was becoming ideal ;
I travelled beneath the sky, Muse! and I was your vassal ;
Oh dear me! what marvellous loves I dreamed of !

My only pair of breeches had a big whole in them.
– Stargazing Tom Thumb, I sowed rhymes along my way.
My tavern was at the Sign of the Great Bear.
– My stars in the sky rustled softly.

And I listened to them, sitting on the road-sides
On those pleasant September evenings while I felt drops
Of dew on my forehead like vigorous wine ;

And while, rhyming among the fantastical shadows,
I plucked like the strings of a lyre the elastics
Of my tattered boots, one foot close to my heart !

Has Corto Maltese really existed ?

From Siberia to the Pacific Islands, from Ethiopia to Turkey, he can be the perfect hero for "old" adventurer, king maker, gold digger, diamond trader, weapon dealer and ............ secretive lover
