PORTRAIT - MAYA - Somewhere between Mexico, Israel and Japan

You may recall our interview with the French-Japanese Sabine and daughter Lea in Shanghai and their tale of rock' n roll expatriation. Maya is Sabine's oldest daughter and a larger-than-life character. A cultural explorer with no fixed-abode, who thrives on authentic encounters, learning languages in the unlikeliest settings and, above all, discovering local cuisines. We were lucky to catch her on her stop-over in Shanghai after a few weeks in Japan and ahead of a mother & daughter trip to Kerala in India.
