Gracias Lionel Messi por ser el mejor de todos. Gracias por mantener esa humildad desde chiquito. Gracias por elegir Argentina a pesar de todo. Gracias por no rendirte nunca. Gracias por hacer oídos sordos a los que no entienden nada. Gracias por llenarme de orgullo de ser ARGENTINA y hacerme tan pero tan feliz durante todos estos años. Eternamente, gracias.

Last, but not least… Merci beaucoup Manon Grandjean!

You are the most wonderful and generous friend I have met on this island and, I am so so so but, so lucky to have you in my life. I hope one day I can be at least close to your excellence, as a professional and as such a wonderful human being you are. I will be forever grateful.
