What do you like about living in the City House?
"The location is great. When I lived in Breda, I used my car for everything, even though it's a smaller city. I did basic things with my car, like going to the grocery store. Now I hardly use my car and walk everywhere, because everything is in walking distance. And when I have to travel further, I just take the tram or metro."
"Also, the City House building is amazing, I'm really having a nice time in Rotterdam."
What is your favourite spot in walking distance from the City House?
"There are so many nice places around. For instance, around the corner you can find Vascobelo. I always go there for my morning coffee, after gym. I'm a very sociable person and I really love to talk. So they already know me over there. They often have my coffee ready before I get in."
How long are you still planning to stay here in Rotterdam?
"I was thinking of moving abroad. At the end I decided to stay here, in Rotterdam. My girls are here. Even though they are adults, I want them to succeed. Once they settle down, I might go back to Mexico or move to Spain. But for the next coming years, I'll stay here."
