Last week was the first weekend in quite a while that I went to a Salsa festival again. Or rather, that I intentionally went to one (it's a story for another time).
La Sandunguera, a dance studio in Bremen, yearly organizes Palladium Voyage. It's a relatively small festival (although it's growing) with a great atmosphere and the chance to take workshops from some really good instructors. And although I did just that, it was not what I was there for. I was there to capture the festival. Or at least some of it's moments.
Photographing salsa festivals is actually one of my favourite things. Sure, it doesn't make me rich (I'm happy to break even) but I get to combine 2 things I like, salsa & photography. Aside from that it's a chance for me to see friends again that I haven't seen in a while.
As I'm writing this though I realize that something just isn't right. It's a post about photography without a single photo in it so far. The reason for that is that I simply haven't gotten around to them yet.
That said, it seems wrong so here is one from last year. Guess I'd better stop writing now and start editing. Enjoy your day!
No, I didn't get lazy with the last one but given the fact that I only know a bit of VB which really isn't a programming language I figured I needed at least one programming language amongst my choices.
All of the options have their pros and cons for me. In the long run I want to move to Brazil (even if only for a couple of years) but it might not be feasible yet. So although it would be practical I also have some time left to learn the language.
Russian is just because I have so many russian friends and not all of them are fluent in English. Plus let's face it, it's cool if you can sound like a spy no matter how old you are :)
Mandarin.. I really don't have a reason for that except that it's been on my list of things I would like to learn for ages now. Perhaps I should just do it.
On my birthday last year, I made a list of the Top 24 Things I Did At 24. It was a fun project, and I decided I'd make it a yearly tradition. That way, every year I grow older I'm forced to do more and more interesting things.
My 26th birthday was yesterday, and while it's a day late, here is my list of the Top 25 Things I Did At 25. A few things didn't make the cut, which is good. It means I did more than 25 cool things this year.
So, in no particular order:
