Magos Herrera en Xalapa

Magos en Xalapa

Por primera vez Magos Herrera viene a Xalapa. Maru está organizando el evento, que será en el Teatro del Estado el sábado 3 de Mayo a las 8 PM. Date cuenta, es el sábado que viene!

Todavía hay boletos, se están vendiendo en la taquilla del teatro – 350 pesos numerado y 250 general. Parte de las ganancias van a Amigos de los Animales, A.C.

No faltes!

Update for the English-monolingual brigade: The post is about the jazz concert my wife is organizing in Xalapa this coming weekend. If you really can’t stand languages other than your own, and you have a feed reader that can filter by tags, you can filter out my posts tagged “In Spanish” and “In Norwegian”. Thank you.

Home, sweet home

I’m finally back in Xalapa after more than three weeks on the road.

After the wildly successful GTK+ Berlin hackfest, I spent a day in the Hague with my good friends Andrea and Marcus, then headed for home. The flight was awful as usual, but mitigated by the fact that I was bringing back good memories and lots and lots of Belgian and Dutch candy.

Swinging by Europe: The Story Thus Far

Late last month, I strapped on my backpack and went across the ocean to FOSDEM in Brussels. It was good to see some of the openSUSE and old Ximian guys again, but I was feeling kind of drained the whole time. Had Belgian waffles w/everything, which is a lot more “everything” than it is “waffle” (i.e. ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate shavings, strawberry jam, strawberries and banana).

After FOSDEM, I spent close to two weeks in Norway, visiting family and friends in between work. I even went skiing one weekend, an experience I’ve been idealizing in my mind since I moved to Mexico. Even so, it lived up to expectations.

My friends at Copyleft Software A/S were kind enough to lend me office space in Oslo. I must say they have an awesome work environment thing going.

After Norway, I left for Berlin where I’m currently taking up space at the GTK+ Hackfest.
