New to this instance but not to . Used to be @cybette 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 , not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.

I asked for a BIG cup of coffee. I guess this is big enough.


Next 12 days: Estonia (orchestra concert trip), Spain (conference), Sweden (visit friends). At least no jet lag to worry about!

After that a short break, and then Netherlands, China, and Taiwan. All before the end of June.

Does anyone here know Japanese or Swedish?

I am learning these two languages and I would like to send messages to someone of sentences I come up with or to have small text conversations to practice :)

I know Russian so if anyone wants to practice it with me I will be happy to help.

Wow I just had 2 meetings during "normal" working hours today, before lunch. Strange feeling.

(most of my meetings are in the evenings with US-based colleagues. I also had a 4 am meeting earlier this morning... joys of working in a global company!)

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)
