The ones who met at the (European) café

Amiovi12:10 . (Kathy) When I’m around here I miss the smell of wood – my father’s wood particularly. He was a cabinetmaker, in the Belgian countryside and so everywhere I see or smell wood now, it brings me back to my childhood.
(Amiovi) What I sometimes miss? My roots: being Togo and Congo. Like Kathy I feel Belgian and I have wonderful memories growing up here, yet I’ll never forget where I come from: the food and the people there.
Do I consider myself European? Yes. I think the concept is beautiful, to be European. It means to be “all in this together”.
(Kathy and Amiovi have been working at the Mickey Mouse café of the European Parliament for more than 15 years – and have been friends since.)
