sent Cheryl off from my apartment after a nice night of apple pie,
shisha/nargila and great conversation. Cheryl i one of my colleagues
that I hang out with quite often. She is a really wonderful person
that I have a lot in common with which leads to us always having these
great talks about all the weird stuff that goes on in our lives. Tonight
I had to appease her a little bit with dinner since she was a bit
upset at the fact that I might not stay in New York after January.
got home from a two week business trip to Tunisia yesterday. Hopefully
I will soon be able to put up some pictures from that trip. I really
feel like I need a digital camera. Developing film and converting
to digital is just to cumbersome nowadays.
trip was quite interesting. I went to organize the participation of
the UN ICT Task Force
in the World Summit on the Information
Society that took place in Tunis from 16-18 November. Apart from
the intergovernmental process there were a lot of side events and
exhibitions that lasted for about a week. Overall our representation
was really good and we managed to get our messages across successfully.
a side note, however, the hotel sucked, the exhibition tent was hot
like a sauna and the food was crap.
to New Haven over the weekend to be with my friend Daniel Klamer.
It was a beautiful autumn weekend and the foliage was at its peek.
We really didn't do much but bum around, talked about life, love and
our uncertain futures. Here is what that looked like:
also had an extrordinary amount of coffee since Daniel loves excellent
coffee. It turns out that I also enjoy a well brewed cup even if my
I am going to Tunisia for two weeks. It is for work but I am really
looking forward to it. The weather will be comfortable. The events
interesting and the people exciting. Don't expect any updates until
I get back though.
brother has been here for a month and he is leaving to go home tomorrow.
A fact that fills me with slight sadness. It is quite a comfort to
have close family members around but it is time for normal routine
to kick in and it is definitely time for me to get back in shape after
two months of visitors and too much good food.
did decide to end his visit in style and went to a great Halloween
party in Brooklyn on Saturday night. As I think everyone would agree
with, merely wearing a costume is not enough. You have to back it
up with a character and a background story. Mischa and I came up with
The Disco Brothers from Moldova!!!:
After the fall of the Berlin Wall Western influences, both modern
and the ones that we missed during the Cold War, has flooded Moldova
and Disco! is currently the predominant fad. Since I, as young kid,
was selected by the Soviet authorities to study extra math I had now
been awarded a scholaship to come and study in the U.S. I saw this
as an excellent opportunity to come and experience Disco! where the
roots of this pelvis- moving music originated.
This is the web page where our team members announce Thanks to many wonderful people who help our team:
After having spent
my first month here my brother Mischa came to visit. He is also a
Disco! afficionado and has even greater moves than I have. After hanging
around in the dorm for a couple of days another grad student promised
to take us to an asskicking Disco! party. (or did he say costume?
My English is not that good yet.)

arriving at the party people kept touching my hair, which is not very
cool since I worked on picking it for a long time. I must also say
that Americans dress very funny when they go to Disco! I guess Disco!
has evolved further here. Mischa and I kicked Disco! butt though and
it was fun to dance with American women although they did not appreciate
man- smell like the women back home. Here are some pictures of us
where we make some cool moves:
