Visiting post-Brexit, pre-AU London – Through the Interface

After a couple of interesting days in Berlin, last week – which for now I’m not going to talk about in detail, maybe another time – I’ve come across to the UK.

I feel very strongly that this is a bad thing for the country – and for the world – but there you go. There’s nothing to be gained by dwelling on it.

Many thanks to Lola Carbajal Moro for organising the visit, and to Han, Francis, Adam, Decio, Paul, Boleslaw and Antonio for making the time to meet with me!
