Co is my nickname, Nada is my pseudonym of choice.

My name is Cosima, it's Italian and it comes from the Greek word cosmos, meaning universe. I used to hate it but now I really like it.

I was born in Geneva 20 years ago, and raised in France. Mostly Paris, but also in Strasbourg for some time. There's nowhere in the world I love more than I love Paris, but there are many places I love. Pragu...

  • Paris. I lived in Paris. I could see the Eiffel Tower from my bedroom, the Sacré-Coeur and la Défense from my balcony. I miss purposelessly roaming the streets of the city, all the shops, all the culture, all the beauty
  • Cafés. Here in Texas there is no valid equivalent of the charming typical parisian café/bistro. The coffee's gross too.
  • People speaking French
  • The metro. I actually loved taking the subway.
  • Food. It just sucks here.
  • French literature. "Remembrance of Things Past" just doesn't quite have that ring to it.
  • Legal drinking age is 18. All of a sudden I'm a minor again and I don't get to drink. Not that I drink much, but I enjoy a beer in a bar with friends, and the occasional White Russian.
  • Taking the train. Here, if I want to go from one end of the country to the other, I kinda have to take a plane.
  • The windows of the Printemps and the Galleries Lafayette were sometimes horrible but always interesting.
  • Obviously, my friends and my family.
