Book by its cover: Natalia & Pablo

People People

Every day travellers and locals mix and mingle in our cafe and community working space Werkplaats. Under the guise of an experiment, we asked two of them some questions. How much can two people who have never met tell, just by looking at the other?

The real Pablo
Back in the days Pablo dreamt of becoming a filmmaker. It took a while for him to get there though. Nowadays he’s a movie producer of fiction and documentaries. That’s the reason for his visit at Volkshotel. He’s here because of IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam). So a big shout out to Natalia, as she was right on the money. Pablo’s favourite music is Brazilian music and he likes the early works of Ed Sheeran. Besides producing films, Pablo loves to work in his garden and plant vegetables. There is something with touching the ground that makes him happy.

The real Natalia
Natalia comes here quite often. In her case not often enough. Her prince charming Marcus works at Volkshotel as a receptionist. She lives in Zurich and Marcus (a Parisian who lives in Amsterdam) and her have been dating for quite a while. She dreamt of becoming a veterinarian when she was young, but now she’s learning to become an anthropologist. Natalia likes dogs, good food and laughter. Her favourite colour is red and her favourite music artist is Depeche Mode. It’s safe to say Natalia knows how to read people, because most of her answers about Pablo are spot on.
