back online & Webheads meeting
- Hi, everyone!
I'm now back home after almost three weeks down in the Algarve enjoying sun, sea and sand and afk (away from keyboard). Another school year is about to start for me. In the meantime, I'm still catching up on mail.
A nice piece of news: I met Elisabeth Fernandes (who lives in Japan) last Wednesday at Casino Lisboa. She was staying with Cristina Costa, so Joao and I drove into Lisbon and met them there for a wonderful f2f chat and a nice show. As usual, meeting a Webhead is an exciting experience and once again we felt as if we'd known each other for a very long time. It was interesting to talk about life and working in Japan, cultural differences, etc, along with many other topics. Webheads? Inevitably! :-) As I commented then, if it weren't for the Internet and the Webheads, we wouldn't be there enjoying one another's company. They took pictures, so we'll be seeing them soon, I hope.
Joao and I also had a drink with Cristina in the Vilamoura marina while she was visiting her parents around mid-August. We had a wonderful time, as usual. It's great to be a Webhead!
Since Daf was in Valencia (Spain) for the whole month of August, we spoke over the cell phone a few times. Pity she didn't have the chance to come stay with us a few days in Vilamoura, as we had planned. Maybe next year!
