Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 118

Today was a fun day, or as some would call it : Saturday. I had something really special lined up and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I attended a workshop by De Steek Amsterdam to make my own swimsuit. I learnt to sew when I was a little girl and something I have never tried beforeContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 118”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 117

One of the benefits of living in a world city is that sometimes extraordinary things happen. This time, it was a chance to do some fine dining in an unusual setting. For the months of July and August, at the Westergas venue x they are hosting a different Michelin star chef every two weeks. IContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 117”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log:Day 116

Sometimes it is good to take stock, if only to see what we have that we can work on, and more likely to see what we can be thankful for. Today I attended a virtual awards ceremony. This means that myself and the other people from my company dialed into a Teams call whilst listeningContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log:Day 116”

It’s the kind of place that I love visiting and looking at stuff, perhaps in the same way that kids go to the toy store. MaybeContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log:Day 113”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 109

Today I went to a site visit for the first time since February. I was so excited I nearly couldn’t sleep, like on the first day of school, a mix between nerves and excitement. I even had flashbacks to my months in Lima, Peru, because I was once again waiting outside my house for anContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 109”
