New to this instance but not to #Mastodon. Used to be @firstname.lastname@example.org but that instance went offline since beginning of 2019 with no way of contacting the admin. Thanks @xvilo for the cordial invitation and here I am! I get another chance at #myfirsttoot, not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.
Starting Jun 1, the centre will add five #ElectricCars to its training fleet, ComfortDelGro said on Tuesday (May 24).
It aims to have 100 electric #cars by 2030, accounting for more than half of its training fleet.
1. La Dama Ibérica sculpture (made of 22,000 miniature sculptures with the same motif in cobalt blue ceramics)
2. Marqués de Campo monument
3. looking down Av. del Mestre Rodrigo (there's a Tesla Centre somewhere along that road)
4. Mercat de Colón (Columbus Market, a work of Valencian Art Nouveau)
24 hours after the first toot in this thread, I'm finally home! Great weather today in Tampere, but I think I'll spend it catching up on sleep. (Averaged 5+ hours of sleep the past week, ranging from 3 to 7 hrs per night).

Some of you may know I've been doing a book-a-week reading challenge. This week I'm a bit thrown off because I couldn't decide which book I wanted to finish this week. Also, I started reading this webcomic, Heartstopper, on Tapas.
Heartstopper (graphic novel) - Wikipedia
Annoyingly, the challenge doesn't count graphic novels, since the point is to read more. I vehemently disagree with the premise because there are plenty of meaty graphic novels out there. 😠
Well ok not really the end of the trip yet since there's no bus/train to Tampere in the wee hours of the morning (there used to be, pre-covid). So I have to stay one night at the airport hotel... Thanks to the upgrade I got some food else I'd be quite hungry now. Great views too.
Received a message from #airfrance to report to the customer service desk, and they upgraded me! (I was almost thinking is there another delay or problem with my ticket?!) Not sure why, since I don't even have FF status with #skyteam. Nice ending to the trip despite the delays and plan changes (and missing an ice hockey game in Tampere).
Doing expense reports at the airport during layover. Oh the glamorous life ...
Managed a window seat at the back of the plane. Better than no seat! Hope to be in the air soon! (Already 15 min delayed but luckily I have a 6-hour layover at CDG this time...)
Let's try getting out of #Valencia again... (flight delayed yesterday and rebooked etc.)
This is not a queue of people paying for their duty free shopping. It's a queue for passport/immigration check. Luckily I don't have to be in this queue.
Survived the CDG transfer, luckily within Schengen there's no additional security check (I must have always flown intercontinental through here previously). Thought I had 5 min to get a drink but the waiter ignored me and when I tried to get her attention and ask for a menu, she just rudely said they're closed without even an eye contact.
