speaking in Plauen

Posted on

I was going to speak in Plauen today, so in the morning I left my hotel and went to the central station. I bought some roasted almonds on the way: But then I got confused. You see, the Czech Railways never tell you the platform of your train in advance. That means you have to […]


Slower Pulse

Posted on

I have this site, it’s about vodka brands, and I called it Slower Pulse (because that’s one thing that alcohol does to you, it slows down your pulse). The concept of the site is simple: I drink vodka and write about it in a very amateurish way. Today I decided to write a new post: […]


Kafka head

Posted on

Took a walk around town. Obviously, Prague was very different from Central Asian towns. But there was one thing both had: Little flower shops next to the road. And in the subway: Apart from that, the city seemed just like the rest of Central Europe, only particularly pretty: There was a Kafka head right outside […]


swimming around the moon

Posted on

Finally being done with my emails, I had some room to do what I really wanted to do – read and swim. I was working through a big fat book by the NASA called “First On The Moon”. It wasn’t easy. The book was interesting at times, but insanely boring most of the time. There […]


vegetarian

Nothing better than looking at an empty inbox. Unfortunately, I was a looooooooooooooong way from that. So I spent all day replying to emails. Then I went out and had dinner in a vegetarian place next door: The food was perfect: good and cheap. Still, I missed the days when I was just walking around […]


wind down

Posted on

My friends left, and I moved to a quiet hotel room: I was going to stay in Prague until Saturday, when I was booked for another presentation in Plauen. Relax, wind down. Get back on top of my email inbox. Update the blog. Read. Swim. Eat. Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.


air + greens + water

Posted on

By now we felt as though there was a certain need to detox, so we went outside and actually had a look at the city: Prague was nice. I ordered a salad as a late afternoon lunch: Then we went to a sauna that was located on a boat floating in the Vltava: You could […]


speaking in Prague

Posted on

Came to the Kolem Světa festival today to give a presentation: It was my third time here, and it was fun as always. There were some hick-ups with my computer, but there was also some exotic dancing (not by me), and the audience was just great. Then I ate, and then I slept. Later that […]


the bishop

Posted on

A long car ride later… …and I was in Prague. I wasn’t there by myself, and I wasn’t there without drinks, either: That night I ended up with my friends, having overpriced alcohol, looking at women taking their clothes off: Not the worst kind of life.
