People People

Every day travellers and locals mix and mingle in our café 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?

She’s here to work. To write something.

The real Sara
Sara works in hospitality, but has a passion for theatre. She’s preparing for a show in Volkshotel next month. When she was a kid she always wanted to create theatre. Or become a dancer. When she’s not working, she likes to daydream and read. Green is her favourite colour. She likes pain du chocolat, coffee, sunshine and every kind of music (except heavy metal). She doesn’t like running late (which happens a lot) and cyclists that yell at people when they’re in a hurry.

The real Hiroshi
Hiroshi is part of artist in residence project Docking Station. He’s from Tokyo and temporarily lives in a tiny hub, hidden in Volkshotel’s parking lot. As a kid, Hiroshi wanted to become a classical music artist. He became a photographer instead. He listens to electro, post-rock and his favourite band Radiohead. Black is his favourite colour. Furthermore he loves Scotch whisky and hates mayonnaise and everything about it. Fortunately he didn’t encounter it yet in Amsterdam.
