HENRIC
Teacher – Educator

We couldn't resist. Certainly, this colorful fashionista did not wander the streets of the Marais. But when we spotted this Swede in central Stockholm, the attraction was too strong.

“I have always loved life in color,” Henrik, who is a middle school teacher where he teaches disabled children, told us, as if it were obvious. It is also in this flashy outfit that he presents himself in front of his students. “Isn't the goal of education to make people accept differences without judging others and to allow children to be who they are? » says this teacher who – even in very progressive Sweden – sometimes receives surprised looks from parents.

It doesn't matter to him. The teacher imposed his look on everyone and even made an illustrated book entitled Stay strong be yourself just the way you are where he poses in a “flower power” outfit in front of the LGBTQIA+ rainbow flag.

The tattoos, which adorn his body, from the crest of an ice hockey team to the words LOVE and HATE printed on his knuckles like Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter? “It’s partly a youthful mistake,” he says before explaining that it is also a family tradition: “Since the XNUMXth century, all my ancestors were sailors,” concludes this descendant. of Vikings who are afraid of nothing. Especially not from what people will say.

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.
