25. 2. 2009 :::: Oosterscheldekering - Dutch water works (September 20, 2008)
During the 4S/EASST conference in Rotterdam, I used the opportunity and participated in a guided tour to the Dutch water works, to its most interesting parts. We were guided by Wiebe Bijker, renowned STS scholar, who has extensively written about this huge technological artifact. Information about this part of the barriers can be found, e.g., here

22. 2. 2009 :::: A trip to Normandy and Bretagne (August-September 2008)
A selection of pictures from my family's holiday trip to Bretagne and Normandy - cathedrals of Amiens, Rouen or Bayeux were impressive but I was most excited about the coast with granite rocks (titles for individual photos will perhaps be added later); pictures taken by ZK, Sony DSC-F717, Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 and one picture here was even taken on mobile phone.
