Increase Freedom (IF) - What's the most fun you've ever had? 

Charles - Everyday is very good for me. Every day. Whether it's rainy or sunny, winter or summer, spring and autumn. I like every day, no matter what.

IF - What's the biggest goal you have?

Charles - I must say this correct. When I begin, 24 years ago, I began to play music, on the street. It was the best moment for me, playing street music. You have no directive, and you are free, absolutely free. I play what I want, when I want. And if somebody give me coins, this is okay. When I play, I'm always looking, if I see Asian people, I play from the cinema "Sound of Music" or French, I play French music, I play Russian, Greece, Brazil,  and American music. Music is my highest joy. I'm happy with music.

IF - What's the best advice you would give to your younger self?

Charles - There are crazy people, not so friendly people and there are interesting people, there are young and old people, man and woman etc. Don't worry about these people, enjoy life yourself. These are the best times of my life.
