*drumroll!!* Introducing...newest member of the family!
Professor Rufus Bowfinger....aka BOWIE!!!
He's from a cold little shelter an hour outside Krakow.
They found the poor guy when, scared out of his wits, he ran into the road and got hit by a car :(
He spent the next few months at the shelter being bullied by bigger dogs :/
But now he has a warm loving home with yummy treats, a tall sparkling Christmas tree, loads of "who's a good boy??" Followed by tons of "you are!" And plenty of walks stocked with doggy bags.
A few fun facts:
Bowie is frightened of mirrors.
Bowie can't seem to lift his leg when going #1
Bowie loves running around with his stuffed Lion.

Paris is dieing. 
The Paris of storybooks, romantic getaways, even the Paris of edgy arts and modern culture. It's dieing. 10 years ago this city kept wheezing it's last breath. Now it's barely there.
Choked by anger, sullen from fear, every corner clogged with cheap trinkets peddled by pushy salesmen.

Hollywood may still be preaching a city of love and wonderment. But your first step here breaks that illusion forcefully.

I arrived here yesterday. My second time to Paris. A short business trip. I saw the aftermath of the worst riot in 50 years. After I finished work, strolling through the city, a sense of tragedy settled in my bones. A deep sadness. It was as if I were strolling through Hollywood sets -- restaurants and shops that wanted to be Hollywood Paris -- and thus felt cheap and fake.  Between them existed the real Paris -- curbs lined in trash, sour messages scrawled on monuments, and the sight people suspicious of everyone -- even their neighbors.

Do you remember the movie Blade Runner?
A few decades ago writers tried imagining what a dystopia in the future would look like: Gritty streets. Harsh neon. And above all...people living in dread.

The future is now. And the dystopia is here...in Paris.
Steemfest 3!
Just gave a 20 min talk about crypto and travel to a crowd of over 300! What a rush!
Especially because the crypto community is such a curious, motivated, and innovative bunch.
We had a great AMA afterward with fantastic questions.

I'm incredibly thankful to have found this niche. Even now, with a bear market in full swing, people are still working on their goals and ambitions. It's inspiring.

Vilnius, Lithuania. 
A sensationally energetic hub for Blockchain in the Baltics. 
Just returned from a small business trip. I interviewed two fantastic young companies. Coinstruction -- building a crypto exchange to aggregate myriad current exchanges under 1 roof. Along the way they plan to bring transparency to the crypto world.
And Global Traders -- worldwide teachers of digital trading in Forex and Crypto. These guys say trading is 20% technical and 80% psychological -- and thus teach how to be Zen about the whole thing.
Besides all this I must say.... Lithuania and Vilnius are beautiful. Nature and architecture are both stunning. Worth a weekend trip :)

On my way to Vilnius, Lithuania. Attending a Baltic Blockchain Accelerator event. 
Stopped into Białystok, Poland. A surprisingly elegant city! With a gorgeous baroque palace, several towering church steeples, and many wide boulevards for strolling in these crisp evenings.

I call this sunset ... Bitcoin Fire. 
The sun was going down and crypto was going up. As were the views for my BTC documentary:

A great evening for a run.

#cryptocruise ended on stellar notes! Heard inspiring things from a Tone Vays, Charlie Lee, and even John McAfee -- who refused to make predictions about #bitcoinprice hahaha. 
Afterwards took several days to take in Barcelona, Spain. Absolutely gorgeous city. Vibrant, alive, cultured, and livable. Easily one of my top 5 cities in the world.

Crypto cruise round two! My upcoming documentary: Bitcoin Around the World, enabled me to attend the European Coinsbank cryptocruise with speakers such as Charlie Lee (creator of Lite Coin) and Roger Ver (Bitcoin Cash). An incredibly educational experience. Plus quite the adventure! Since we're stopping in to quite a few sensational ports. The first one...Monte Carlo in the principality of Moneco. 
What a fascinating city. With overwhelming shows of wealth.

I write this post with deep sadness.
Last week I happened to meet one of my favorite writers and travelers...Anthony Bourdain.

Summer and I had been strolling through Colmar, a quaint French city known for food and wine, when we happened to pass by the windows of a little bistro. A few steps later I stopped Summer mid-step. She asked why I had that shocked/confused look about me. "I think we just walked by Anthony Bourdain" - I said.

We backtracked. Turned out to be true. One of his TV crew stood outside and I inquired about Anthony. The man himself had just wrapped filming at that restaurant -- a new episode for his series "Parts Unknown". Before he drove away I was given the chance to shake his hand and tell him how much I admire his writing. He's known and loved the world over. Just a few months ago I even found one of his books (A Cook's Tour) in a hostel in Thailand. Since I hadn't read that one just yet, I read it until the covers fell off. 
After he drove away, Summer had the brilliant idea to go into that restaurant and ask for the same dishes he'd ordered. Naturally they were delicious. 
Anthony Bourdain's taste and expression in food, film, and foreign travels will be missed by myriads the world over. I'll be one of them.

And if you haven't watched his shows or read his works, I invite you to do so. They are passionate, inspirational...and real. .

Treasure! Being at my grandparent's house I've naturally found a treasure trove of baby pics!
