Good overall race today! Sunny weather, great atmosphere and a new PB for me! Time today was 01:31:44. Got in no. 22 overall and no. 3 in my age category. At about 1.5 km back to the finish line I had a nasty fall resulting in a sprained left hand that took the fall and blood everywhere also on my right knee. This cost me and I was overtaked by a couple of runners thereafter.
Many thanks to all those who have contributed to the charity I ran for.

Photos from a vacation trip to North Cyprus. All photos in this gallery are taken with an iPhone 6.
Fun fact about North Cyprus:
It’s an island divided. Although the population of Greek Cypriots holds majority over the Turkish Cypriots, the many wars between the two peoples of this island necessitated a separation of cultures. For this reason, the Greeks live in the southern portion of Cyprus while the Turks occupy the north.
Photos inside of Mensch in Copenhagen. The office I'm sharing with the good Mensch people.
Mensch means "a person of integrity and honor". The key to being 'a real mensch' is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous." The term is used as a high compliment, expressing the rarity and value of that individual's qualities.

Fun fact about London:
To pass the Knowledge, the insanely difficult London geography test required of black-cab drivers in the city, you must master 320 basic routes, all of the 25,000 streets that are scattered within those routes, and about 20,000 landmarks and places interest within a six-mile radius of Charing Cross.
A few landmark photos from a short trip to Paris, France.
Interesting fact about Paris:
The French Resistance cut the elevator cables to the Eiffel Tower to keep Hitler from visiting it during his visit after Paris fell. When faced with the prospect of climbing more than 1500 stairs, he opted out.
Landscape photos from a week around southwest Iceland.
Fun fact about Icelanders:
Surveys show that despite their obsession with modern technology, as many as 80% of Icelanders believe in the existence of elves. Even today, roads have been rerouted and building plans redesigned or abandoned to avoid disturbing rocks where elves are said to live.
