Ansible Weekly is now coming to you from Cork, Ireland. I just moved here this week and will be here for a few months. Beautiful little town and the weather is nice and cool even in August.
Berlin was a great place to be the last few months - especially with the World Cup going on. Was an insane all night celebration after the win with fireworks, crowds in the streets, all cars honking, for hours and hours - quite a sight.
If you happen to be in Cork, drop me a line :)
