Torontonians! Commander Hadfield calls you!
 
A little over a year ago, I attended an event in London at the request of Professor Brian Cox. I imagined that it would be a charity science event similar to those I'd done in the past: educational, if a little dry. Fun, if a little muted. In short, it would be a nice evening and little else.

But sometimes the greatest pleasures come unexpectedly. It was exuberant and haphazard and celebratory, with a laid back atmosphere of no-strings-attached entertainment. An effortless blend of music, science, comedy and everything in-between. It turned out to be one of the better evenings of my life.

Since that day, I've been determined to recreate the act in Canada. A night like that is meant to be repeated. And this Fall, I'm incredibly pleased to be able to make it a reality.

Generator is coming to Toronto on October 28th, and I couldn't be more excited. Save the date. We're going to have a great evening together.

I will be heading to Russia this year, however, I might not post some stuff due to umm…well…the regime. I'll post the last of the Spain photos in Moscow and and then...it's my last 3 weeks in Russia. Then I can only return after 2 years, provided I get a document from university that temporarily frees me from military service.

In other news, the Mediterranean water is fantastic; I go to the beach everyday and realize that parting with the dear Costa Brava won't be easy.

Rosé wine at our friends' pool. To be honest, I did try it, and I have to say that it's not my thing. Sticking to San Benedetto iced tea for now. #Empuriabrava #EmpuriaLife #Wine

España France Album 1504: Collioure et Perpignan

Today I visited Collioure, a small seaside town in the southern part of Pyrenees Orientales (66). As always I had good swim, however he water was extremely cold. Could stay in the eater for long. So anyway. Grilled sardines for lunch and a walk around town. Later, we headed northwest to Perpignan, the capital of département no 66. I visited the Fortress of Mallorcan Kings, where I took some shots of the city.

España Album 1506: Nautical voyage to Parc Natural de Cap de Creus

Today, my family and a handful of friends pooled money to join a catamaran cruise around the peninsula. We began in Roses, swam by the calas of Roses and Cap de Creus lighthouse (my profile picture). After that we dropped anchor in a little inlet, and had a nice swim. Water was cold, but the marine life was really cool. Silver fish feeding on some sort of grass on the bottom of the baylet. Lunch was cooked on the grill and there was music. Some of the passengers (mostly French) decided to dance. Anyway, a great trip with lots of photos. #catalunya #costabrava #capdecreus

Please be aware that Internet is scarce and it'll be rare for me to post photos. Here's some fried cheese from Barcelona.

A very Dutch bicycle in #Roses. There was another one like this representing Belgium.

España Album 1505: S'Agaró

This was a few days ago (before ES-1504); we headed south via C-31 towards S'Agaró, where we had some coffee (and gin) before our 2.5 km walk around the coast where there are villas that used to be inhabited by famous stars, such as Frank Sinatra, Oraon Welles, Charlie Chaplin, Elizabeth Taylor, and others. Look it up on Wikipedia. Great view, great time. Also, one of the pines made a great wallpaper (the one with the needles up close). #España #Catalunya #CostaBrava

The market in #Figueres yesterday evening. A neat, simple structure.

Saw this guy from the Nizhniy Novgorod oblast yesterday in Roses. That's quite the drive. Probably wanted to get out of the country due to the situation. Understandable. If you can't fly, drive. #152rus #52rus

I realize this isn't some high class restaurant, but if you're even in midtown, go and try this place. This a simple food "gallery" (as they call it); they have everything from noodles to sushi. And it's all Korean. Which is awesome. Last time I was there, I got soy ramen noodles with pork...(I think). Anyway, they gave me a giant bowl of it and it was the most delicious bowl of Asian noodles I had in a long time, if not ever. So go ahead and try it - there's plenty to choose from and for lovers of frozen yoghurt, there's a Red Mango (never tried; I usually go the Pinkberry next door). I really really recommend it. Oh - almost forgot - on the top floor, there's a patisserie with mouthwatering pastries: linzer cookies, macaroons, and more. Try it out. You won't regret it, that's for sure.

I have to say, this place is the best for breakfast and German food. I was there for lunch, but I used the brunch menu. I got a chorizo hash with a nice salad on the side. Now, here's the bad part. I got a side of bacon in addition and it was ~$5. What was so wrong about the bacon? Well...the gave me *only four (4)* strips!!! I appreciate your lovely food, Spitzer's, but four strips of bacon _does not_ cost five bucks. It just doesn't. Now for the people reading this, don't get too concerned. Other than that, it was a great atmosphere; the location was beautiful with all its wood panels and communal tables. It's a really talkative place. So there you go.
