Goodbye 2013

In January I started at a new company and I was very excited.

In February our second son was born.

In March I was focusing on work while our sons kept on growing.

In April I had my first business trip in the new job to Copenhagen

May was Vappu and merryment

In June I went again to Copenhagen

Unfortunately, in July I had to start looking for new professional challenges again but since everyone else was on holiday in Finland we traveled to Mallorca to relax a bit.

In August I was full-time focused in finding a new position

The same in September

But the kids always made it worth it

By October, I knew what was in our future

By the end of the month we were ready to move

And since the beginning of November, we have been living in Dubai


Where the work has been very interesting. World-class stuff in an encouraging environment surrounded by digital experts in their fields who also know how to have fun.

In December, we visited Finland for Christmas

All in all we can sum up 2013 like this:

Personally: wonderful.
Professionally: challenging, but ending on a good note.

El Buque Escuela Cuauhtémoc en Helsinki

El embajador de los mares está justo ahora en Helsinki para la regata Tall Ships Races. Tuvimos la oportunidad de abordar y además uno de los oficiales amablemente nos dió un recorrido por el barco. La verdad es que está muy bonito y tanto la embarcación como su tripulación han hecho una excelente impresión en Finlandia, mejorando el perfil de México por acá. El resto de las fotos en Flickr, pero las mejorcitas acá abajo.

Recommended book: The New North: The World in 2050

The New North: The World in 2050. Laurence C. SmithThe New North: The World in 2050. Laurence C. Smith by Laurence C. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book raised significant interest here in Finland, and it is not difficult to see why. Reminds me a lot of Joel Diamond’s work (for good or bad) without the hysteria. You can see it started as a climate change study that turned into an exercise in geopolitical prospection. You might or might not agree with its future scenarios, but it was an interesting and not too heavy read.
