    Dreamy wedding...

    WOW. How different is THAT? For someone whose Cuban motion has been openly praised, I sure didn't do it last night :p the way the feet go, the frame (HURRRAAAY)! So much to think about! WE focused all on foundational concepts and came a long way in th ehour we were there. So much more than...

    Interesting Congressos Coming Up / Travel Related

    Congress in LOUTRAKI??? On my BIRTHDAY?? Oh my god. Loutraki is where my grandmother and I used to go to get our drinking water. She's not with us anymore, bless her soul. Loutraki is close to where we live. I'm in Canada now but.. but... Oh god what a weird mix of past and present that would be.
