Took the train Saturday to Solothurn, Switzerland for their Pecha Kucha Night #3. I got carried away and presented 3 different projects: Geographical Imaginations, The CAMINANTE Project and The Great American Pilgrimage (Appalachian Trail). Great hosts and quite the Kulturnacht in this great Swiss town outside of Zurich. Thanks again to all!
Have you heard of Pecha Kucha Nights? Check them out. Chances are there is an event organized in your city or region. Great way to share projects and ideas in a vibrant forum. Who said the 21st century public forum was dead? Here I am speaking in Aalen, Germany–one of nine Pecha Kucha presentations I have given in the last 2 years or so.
Check out my 1.5 second “cameo” in the Salzburg episode of Madrileños por el Mundo (MXM). While Sonia Ibáñez steals the show I unknowingly managed to get caught on camera behind an interesting French moustache. Look for it at 16:27-16:28.5 on MXM’s YouTube Channel here.

My fascination with the Almkanal only grew more with a tour of the Mönchsberg, or Monk’s Mountain, tunnels with Almmeister Wolfgang Peter on the evening of Tuesday, September 22. Construction of this 400 meter tunnel dates back to 1136 to 1143 when the Archbishop wanted to bring water to the protected St. Peter’s Monastery and Church on the other side of the mountain, in the heart of the Old Town of Salzburg. For 3 weeks each September the Almkanal waters are lowered in order to conduct the necessary annual repairs. Tours of the tunnel take place then.
