See the world from home

We're almost at the weekend. Not that it matters much as each day seems to roll into the next. We're trying to mix things up, and we can get outside a little (but not too far!). There are some new documentaries that we will be working into the virtual school lessons. A number of museums are offering virtual tours.

Earlier today I delivered a lecture over the Internet to over 40 legal and computer engineering university students in Poland. Before COVID-19 forced a change of plans, I was supposed to be back in Europe this week for lectures and trainings in Poland, Germany and a visit to the Brussels office. Those plans were cancelled a few months ago, but now I'm delivering lectures and trainings via Zoom. This does not replace the need for in-person interaction, but it's the best we can do right now with travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders.

Memorial, Budapest

Photo by Patrick Jones. Budapest, 8 December 2019.
The photo above is a stained glass memorial to the Holocaust at the Dohany Street Synagogue in Budapest, Hungary. The front of the synagogue is below. The snow and rains cleared for my Sunday morning walk in Budapest before I continued onto Bucharest later in the day. Both photos from 8 December 2019.

Wrought Knit Labors Legacies

New public art at the Alexandria Waterfront. 26 March 2020.
Yesterday I took a break for a solo six mile run to Old Town Alexandria & back. Along the way I saw the new public art installation of Olalekan Jeyifous' sculptures titled Wrought, Knit, Labors, Legacies. The installation is currently blocked off for COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, but one can get close enough to see the new art. This new temporary exhibition is intended to be in place through November 2020.
