  • Mexican Food (Part 2)

    This is a bit of a follow-up on my previous rant on Mexican food and its representation abroad, see the previous entry, since last time I’ve tried to show “the way” to my Norwegian friends and I thought it would be nice to document the process. I’ve also written about food during some holidays, see: […]

  • Day of the Epiphany (Three Kings’ Day?) away from Mexico

    Following up on my series “Celebrating holidays away from Mexico”, after entries such as: a rant about Mexican food on independence day and day of the dead January 6th is Día de Reyes, the last date of what we Mexicans know as the Guadalupe – Reyes marathon (which is, in short, an extended holiday period […]

  • Christmas 2020

    This is meant to be a reflection on spending Christmas alone in one of the worst years for the planet in general. I think it’s basically beating on a dead horse to say that 2020 has been horrible in general due to COVID-19, everyone has had it tough for a lot of reasons, from the […]

  • Dungeons and Dragons: Asuria (Part 8 – Online)

    As usual this is a follow-up on a previous entry This Wednesday’s session was a bit special, after a surge in COVID-19 cases, my city’s municipality decided to improve safety measures, therefore the office had to do it as well… We’re basically expected to work from home until January 15th, so rather than getting together […]

  • A little more than a year living in Norway

    As the title suggests, it’s been a little over a year since I moved to Norway for work… It’s been a challenging year to say the least, and not only because of COVID-19. For starters, it’s been hard to get used to this weird country’s ways (and I mean this in the most endearing way), […]

  • Fishing as a new hobby

    For some time now, starting from spring last year, I’ve been going out to fish (from the fjord’s shore) with 2 of my friends here. Let’s just say that we’re not very good at this, a lot of our lures/hooks have been lost to seaweed and even bad knots that came loose while throwing (that […]

  • Privacy Resources and ongoing translation efforts

    Humanetech Translation Project Otherwise known as HTP (I personally prefer HTTP 😛 ), is a little project that started on the Humane Tech Community forum after my little comment about privacy related content available mostly in English, see this entry for context. The project has officially started and is looking for translators, so if anyone […]

  • Day of the dead away from Mexico

    I usually like to hate on Facebook but I’ve got to admit it is useful if used responsibly, this time thanks to it, I found out that a mexican baker had moved to town and I managed to get “Pan de Muerto” (Dead bread?). I feel like I have to describe it for non-mexicans: for […]

  • Some thoughts on the weekend hike

    This weekend was fun, on Sunday some friends invited me to tag along on their weekend hike. All this happened because the company I work for decided to donate money to a charitable cause, the money amount was proportional to the distance logged by all its employees so that was motivation for us to run, […]

  • Convenience vs Privacy (Round 2)

    Context For a while now I’ve been trying to find ways to convey the risks of social media and the importance of privacy to my non-tech savvy family members, in a previous entry I went over getting away from WhatsApp (Facebook really) and using element connected to my own self hosted synapse server. The Social […]
