This morning I had the final presentation of my Master’s project. The presentation was not perfect, but it was sufficient to graduate according to the assesment committee. While it is not official (the board of examination has to approve the administrative part) I am now almost Master of Science 🙂

Yesterday I also bought a new used mountainbike. It is an Intersens with full Shimano Deore LX group and a Shimano XTR rear derrailleur. The front is a Rockshox Pilot spring. I’m very happy with it considering the price I paid for it. A picture (not taken by me) is below:

Trip to China

Today I booked a flight to China in June. Mieke is going to do an internship at a Chinese company in Beijing, called PER-Design. Since I’m graduating in May (if everything goes according to plan), I have some free time in June, which I will use to travel two weeks to China to visit her. I’ve never been to a country outside of Europe, so I’m looking forward to the trip. Obviously, I will take my camera with me to make some pictures.
During my visit, Mieke will hopefully have a few days off, so we can travel around. If anybody knows some interesting locations to visit in Beijing, please let me know. When I’m back, which is on the 30th of June, I have to visit the concert of Genesis in the Amsterdam Arena. Since I was planning to go with Mieke, I will have to find someone else to go with, because it is a bit of a waste to throw the extra ticket away…
The next day, monday the 2nd of July, I will start with my new job
