Bangkok:  hand; TG duck and a can of foie gras; love; Transat

November 29, 2021 My hand is recovering, slowly.  Ten days after the surgery I can type better but making a fist or holding anything with some mass is still out of the question.  Yesterday I went for a run for the first time since the surgery and did some pull-ups.  It will be a while … Continue reading Bangkok:  hand; TG duck and a can of foie gras; love; Transat

Krabi:  memories, consciousness and legal murders; new Mac; new tickets; new surgery; and a tour du Soleil .

November 12, 2021 I was here 20 years ago.  I don’t think I have mentioned this before but I used to live in Bangkok; I was living and making a living in Thailand.  But twenty years is a long time these days. Things change fast, towns and cities grow and transform themselves.  I have vague … Continue reading Krabi:  memories, consciousness and legal murders; new Mac; new tickets; new surgery; and a tour du Soleil .

Lisbone:  rivers, rooftops, and streets; wines, single malts and installations; a BD

Same – Casa-Blanca: Another BD, another departure, ethanol, back to ANTARES

August 9, Last was an eventful week.  On August 05 we celebrated Marina’s 16th birthday. Friends came over at night for a BBQ and stayed until the early morning. Despite the dancing, we probably consumed too many calories and too much ethanol (in the form of wine).  Still, the next day Natalia was able to … Continue reading Same – Casa-Blanca: Another BD, another departure, ethanol, back to ANTARES

Tumbaco – Ecuador: Anthropocene; a BD; a departure; Drunk

July 1st I'm drinking coffee outside while I write this.  There are a couple of cows across the river eating grass for breakfast under the sun. The sun hasn’t reached this place yet and it’s cold, so I had to wear a jacket.  This is not Casa Blanca, I am no longer by the beach … Continue reading Tumbaco – Ecuador: Anthropocene; a BD; a departure; Drunk
