Working from China

Sweet Spot NY Times August 2   Click to See 

While teaching a 2 week workshop in two different cities in China, I also continued work on my weekly column for the NY Times.  It was a challenge with the Chinese giant firewall and uncertain wifi in the various hotels and schools I was at. And I did it!! Feeling accomplished for all the technical issues.

Meanwhile I took a trip and visited some amazing places, here are a few highlight photos.

Iceland, Blue Lagoon

Reykjavik Iceland
 Iceland is a land of contrasts.
Harsh environments, ancient lava flows, thermal pools, it stays light till 10:40 pm and the sun rises at something like 3 am.

Outside of Helsinki Finland

Lisbon, Portugal

Watching the tourists


Amsterdam, Netherlands

Me taking a rest from all the walking, Amsterdam.

It stayed rather gray and gloomy during our visit. A few short sun peaks.

Reykjavik's population is only 60% of the countries 350,000.  Its like a small town.

Helsinki was warm and very green, it was summer for everyone who lived there.  Outside of the city we got glimps of the country life. 
Cheese was very yummy as was the grilled salmon at an open market in city center.

Lisbon was cool in temp. It also had a lot of illustrators and amazing street art. It was, truth be told, also very touristy.
Great coffee experiences!!!

What can I say, Amsterdam is a must see. Van Gogh museum, etc...
It was very warm and all the flowers were in bloom. My allergies kicked in. So I saw the city through itchy eyes and sneezing dripping nose.

Fun trip, but now happy to be back home.
