About this Website


This amateurial website is a way of keeping in contact with friends and family, especially during travels  and assignments abroad.

Its patchwork of styles reflects the fact that it was conceived over a timespan of over 12 years, on several computers, at least 5 different web editors and 2 operating systems.

Technology, internet availability and photo equipment are not the only reason for this diversity: with the passing of the years my perception of things evolved.

When I read some of the chronicles I wrote from China in 2002, I have to smile at the naivity of some of my own remarks.

This website is an account of what I experienced and who I was, at the moment I wrote it.

“Throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
