Liege new station, Santiago Calatrava's project.

Liege new station... Santiago Calatrava's project:
(Thx to Justine and Mathieu for the pictures)

You like or you don't like. Anyway, nobody can miss it... It's just enormous...
Most of the people here like it... except when they know how much it cost...

For you, maybe another reason to visit me in Liege :) So not that bad finally...

In one month I'm leaving Liege to go to Thailand and China with Brice, during one month. After that I'm going to Australia for 5 months.
Send me your address by email if you want postcards :)

Greetings from the rainy country!

Summer of sports

100m - one of the first rounds

200m - the hero!

high jump - click here to watch in in better resolution (ok I just noticed the resolution is not much better - but well now I'll leave it like this)

my father and me - me being a fan! (the performance of the Finnish javelin throwers was quite poor though - the Norwegian guy looked better anyway!)

(Most of the photos were taken by my parents whose camera is much much better than mine.)

This was a wonderful world championship and although the stadium was quite empty especially in the beginning, the atmosphere was just amazing and we were very lucky with the weather. What an absolutely great week!

These are some photos I just found on my computer. I took them a couple of weeks ago, on the day of the Fête de la Musique, when we were on our way to the next stage.
The result was: we didn't reach the stage because the apocalypse caught us before we could get there. We were soaking wet and no taxi stopped for us. But the light was great!

Life's strange

I've got a story for you my friends. A short story about life - how strange it is and how sudden changes it brings.

Two days ago I've spent whole day in Katowice (the nice rainy city where Phil concert was held, you remember Adam :) ) looking for a job. My point was really to find a job there, so I did my best to prepare portfolio (print it out in a nice folder and pack into selfmade cardboard box), went without any previous note and tried to reach
heads of all the offices I was applying. I didn't contact them earlier, cause I didn't want to say I'm looking for a job, as I'd finish then as one of hundreds waiting for response and I didn't send portfolio via mail either, as in my opinion personal contact would be best way to convince them to hire me.

And probably it would be like that, if I'd manage to reach at least one of the architects in charge. I didn't. After visiting one of best polish offices placed in this region od Poland (some of them been really well designed) I came back home completely exhausted and mentally wasted. I took a shower and ate supper.

Then my phone rung and it occured that in 5 minutes I've got to decide if I want and I'm able to move to London for a month to work on one of latest competitions won by office of the lady at the top. Wasn't so easy, but I said yes. I had to rearrange all my plans for the forthcoming month, some of them really important to me, but I hope everything will end up well. It has to.

So that's the story. Story about life's jokes, when you cannot find a job in your own country, and suddenly you finish on a contract in one of the best practices all over. Story about the architecture student's life, about the moment when he becomes a bitch, that's able to leave everything and within 3 days move to the other country to work his ass off for a well known boss. To get this short note to your resume, that you worked for him/her, to be still able to find a job in your own country.

But I'm curiuos. Maybe even a bit anxious.

And how's your summer?


Had a free weekend, so here come some photos:

Not so disappointing

Salut, ça va?

Picknicking in Paris and trying to take stupid Eiffel Tower photos. Didn't work out. On the right: our dinner.

Good people.

Good things.

Yes, we also did some sightseeing.


Merci again to François and all of you. And the Parisian sun.

Mayday Mayday!

If you're out in Kreuzberg on the 1st of May, you can choose between throwing stones against the policemen or just having some nice party on the streets. We went for the latter one and spent our day and night eating, drinking, dancing and catching a lot of sun.
For more and better photos, check the incredible xammm.com.

Rhythm is a dancer!
Hundreds of people were dancing in the streets before everything was ended by the police.

Hugs from Sunshine City!
