Brand new

On Monday, 18 September, I went to the consulate to renew my passport.

Not being in a particular hurry, I did it in the afternoon (they do urgent ones in the morning).

(Extra)ordinary Tech Stories

On 23 June 2023, this year,...

Right now I’m sipping a Spritz while I’m getting a pedicure,...
