It’s Sunday. After the confusion last evening if we should present us in the hotel
lobby by 8h or 8:30h, if we would get breakfast or not, it turned out for the best:
8:30h and breakfast provided at the revenue.
I use the unexpected half enough to blog about the arrival and to gather my equipment that
I won’t be able to use the other days for security reasons when we are in the European
I’m 5 minutes to late in the then empty lobby and realise that against my intuition
there is not even a trace of the ~100 people.
during the following 7 days, I will be at Strasbourg for the simulation of the European Parliament in the European Parliament. The adventure started yesterday and I will try to blog here regulary if I find some time (could be the last post already ) or tweet hashtag #MEUs2015.
Yesterday evening, we had our check-in, a short recap of important rules that have been distributed ahead of time per mail, but were assumed to haven’t been read, and finally the EuroFEAST, our international potluck.
I am asking you again to be sure that there is no misunderstanding.
You want that I use a profile on a US enterprise network, where EU privacy standards are willingly and legally broken, censorship is performed (e.g. Turkey1), and data is abused to retain citizens of any country. They have still death penalty2 over there and use whatever is necessary to eavesdrop even international political conferences (NSA spying on Copenhagen climate talks3).
Es ist Sonntag in Lyon. Ich stehe gerade noch rechtzeitig auf um nicht auch noch das Mittagessen zu verpassen. Das wartet natürlich nicht auf mich – es möchte selbst zubereitet werden. Ich beschließe spontan für den lokalen Internationalen Studenten-Verein ebenfalls einige Crêpes zu backen, so dass durch den Erlös die Vereinskasse sich der schwarzen Null annähern mag – eine gute Sache. Außerdem könnte ich selbst vorweg ein paar Crêpes zum Mittag essen. Also los.
