Do you think that your stay in Greece will affect your work habit?
I’m doing a lot of work there. It’s a good place to work because there’s no reason to delay it to the next day: there is no phone or even electricity. There is a real civilization, by which I mean hospitality, kindness in the streets, and people blessing children. I live in a small village – I know people who believe I own an island and a great palace, but the truth is the perfect opposite.
