The first round of the game is very silent, like no one really knows what to say. Antoine breaks the silence between two sips of lemonade.
-But, by the way, why Cambodia?
-What? Are you serious???? Shut up! Don’t encourage them! Goes Morgane with a falsely angry look. I would never miss an occasion to annoy her so I jump in the conversation.
-Well, based on my research, Cambodia is a country where a foreigner can own 100% of its company, it is developing fast, and there are lots of businesses for sale at a fair price.
Morgane slowly turns to me and I can feel a bit of fear in her eyes.
-Really? I mean, you really did some research? Like, for real?
-Well, I have quite a lot of free time at work those days so it keeps me busy to look at this kind of things.
-Yes, I see, but you’re not serious, right?
-I don’t know, to be honest, it mainly made us want to go for a vacation, it sounds like a very cool country with a lot of cultural points of interests, nice places to relax, beautiful beaches, and it is quite cheap, too.
The conversation starts to stray into our next holiday destination, and before the end of this game, everyone approves the idea that we would go together to Cambodia, on the condition that we manage to align our schedules to find suitable dates for everyone. I warn everyone right away, clearly; given my amount of work and my current motivation, it won’t be a problem for me.
