Month: December 2006

Finally got Internet up and running after all these boring weeks without being able to surf the web, changing service providers is no easy task that's for sure.

In the meantime, have a fun and relaxing 2007 if possible.

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
Mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
Ché la diritta via era smarrita.

In the middle of the journey of our life
I found myself in a dark wood,
For I had lost the right path.

- Dante

Right now there is moderate rain in Rotterdam at 8 degrees C, few clouds in Los Angeles at 19 degrees C, and overcast in Annapolis at 1 degree C, believe it or not. What a difference depending on where you are and when.

Why on earth I was made to attend the Stanford summer school and take a course on Dutch history given in Dutch was beyond me. I felt happy to be back in familiar territory but was not very keen on struggling through difficult material in Dutch of all languages.


I thought I was wrong but I wasn't. That's a good feeling and makes me feel like making it happen no matter what.
