What’s your name?

I’m Simon Cafaro Kramer from Buenos Aires, and I have no sisters or brothers.

Buenos Aires is a very beautiful city: there’s greenery everywhere.

Football is very important here: all Argentineans love football. The game means a lot to me as well.

Another thing that’s very popular in Buenos Aires is dancing the Tango.
What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I go out with my friends; we play games together — among them, football.
What music do you like?

I love Argentinean Rock; but I also like International Rock music.
What do your parents do for work?

My parents are both lawyers. My mother works in the center of Buenos Aires; my father works at the German Embassy here.

My father and I sometimes eat alone because my mother comes home from work quite late.
What are your hopes for the future?

My hope for the future is that we live in a world with more justice, in which there are fewer wars and conflicts between countries.

And people who need help — the poor — have to get more of it.

Rich people can’t always keep all the money.
