Detour over Seattle

May 22nd, 2011 3 comments

Someone (not me) had a lot of fun with the customs in Anchorage, so I’m now in Kurt Cobain’s city 😀 instead of Frankfurt or at home. But who cares, and I can use the time to post a video for your which fits this situation:

So Anchorage, Alaska, was great. I have meet a lot of interesting people on the IPDPS conference, mainly the important guys of the HPC community, and also some nice people from Anchorage and Seattle. I will post some pictures about the amazing nature in Alaska, when I’m back in Germany.

Update:
Ok, my 2-week-business-trip around the world is finished. Moscow is really a nice place and is worth a visit, but your are nearly fucked up with English 🙁 and most of the important signs in Moscow are only written in Cyrillic. I hope it’s better in Germany, but I’m afraid that the same percentage of the German population can’t speak English.

And now I proudly present … the promised panorama pictures …
