what can I say? ...first half of 2008...

Once again a loooong time passed since my last blog entry. Actually quite scarry I did not manage to write since last February! It is true that my life calmed down a bit but that is no excuse ;-)

So again a quick overview of what has happened so far... actually not that much.

I was mainly busy working and travelling back and forth: Zamalek (the place I live in) -work- Zamalek. Depending on thraffic, this could mean up to 3,5 hours stuck in traffic per day. Time enough to doze off in the morning and have nice conversations with colleagues taking me back in their car.

April was marked by the visit of my dear LesAnciens. For the first time the annual Les Anciens meeting did not take place in Europe but in our wonderfully chaotic Cairo. We organised pre-events in Luxor&Asswan and in the White Desert and a relaxing post event in Dahab. The tradidional saturday European Night was hosted by Karina in her great living room, high up, with view on Nile and Pyramids. Once the furniture was moved, the DJ took his place and the bar was set up, the perfect party location was created. And as we did not only celebrate the Europen night but also my 30th Birthday (yes, I joined the club this year) we had plenty of reasons to dance til dawn ;-) It was lots of fun and great to have you all here!

Summertime was linked to lots of travelling... In June I got to spend some days in Germany to the occasion of Michiel and Janina's wedding in Luebeck. Then I travelled to Barcelona for a conference in July and in August it was Janine's turn to get married to her Southafrican Donald in Bremen. All the best to the happy couples!
