1. How would you describe your hometown to someone who has never been before?
Marcella- I am lucky enough to call London my hometown. London is full of colour, there is always something happening; both permanent and temporary. We’re lucky enough to have lots of day and week long events like festivals, shows and markets. I always know i’m home when I sit on the tube and people watch and see how London is made up of so many different cultures, languages and styles, it makes it so full of life!
Clem- It is big but it has a village’s soul, as you get to know your neighbours quickly and they get to know your life quickly! It has an accent! It smells like fish! It makes best pastis ever! It hosts oriental cultures! It’s loud and alive! It has a the same reputation as Chicago in terms of its gangster History! It has sun all year long! Its protector is embodied by the splendid “Notre Dame de la Garde”, so-called “La Bonne Mère”, the basilica which overlooks the entire city from its hill! You can see la bonne mère from every corner of the town! Its culture has recently been boosted in receiving the status of European Capital of Culture in 2013! It is lovable! It is Marseille!
2. What is an odd/interesting/weird talent that you have? (ex. double jointed, three nipples, plays trombone, etc.)
Marcella- I can make a weird clicking noise with my mouth, does that count?
Clem- I taught synchronized swimming to young girls in Chile!
3. If you were a food, what food would you be and why?
Marcella- I’d be a falafel because i’m small and veggie!
Clem- I’d be a mango to live in exotic countries!
4. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Marcella- A piranha! We just caught it in the Amazon, there was hardly any meat on it though. I just kept looking at it’s sharp teeth.
Clem- Marcella’s favourite: Marmite! So black, strong, and unique! Also sounds like the description of my ideal boyfriend…
5. What would you do with a million dollars?
Marcella- Sounds crazy but I wouldn’t like to have a million dollars! If I won less money though I’d go travelling for a really long time!
Clem- Sounds cheesy but I would open my own NGO in different parts of the world and work in Child Protection! I would also buy expensive food, but not caviar!

10. What is your pet peeve?
11. If you had a TARDIS, when and/or where would you go?
