Was in Durham all week attending the British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science. It was as exciting as it sounds.
Visited Newcastle for a day. The highlight of the week were the two mad Italian waitresses. Italian-1 was from Sardinia, I’m not sure about the 2nd one. Me: “Ah, you’re a Geordie as well, ey?”, Italian-2: “Aai, Geordissima!”.
I thought that was very funny. So is this, on the origin of China’s 2008 Olympics logo.
Came across this photo here, which is soooo Balkans! Greece of course.
