Making daily workouts and regular meals a priority because self-care is foundational, which has helped a lot.
Went up the metrocable all the way to the top and Parque Arvi, which was cool! I went a year ago, but didn’t make it all the way.
Continuing to work on learning Spanish via Duolingo and being annoying (or maybe adorable?) to locals. Nowhere near conversational yet, but at least getting past transactional.
Intense. But my team are amazing, which makes it feel possible. Can’t wait to show the world what we’ve been working on.
Went to an iOS meetup in Spanish which I understood… enough of, so that was an achievement!
My usual breakfast spot, and regular food places Sushi Market (omg the view, and the walk down after – I love it), Tabun (hummus!), La Provincia (mushroom pate) and Carmen (great internet and excellent food), and my fave tea place Pez en Agua.
A new edition of Technically Speaking is out.
