Week 274

At the start of this week Alper was still in NYC after enjoying another excellent edition of PRACTICE.

Last Monday Kars handed over the running engagements to me and tied up some loose ends for ASARI and SABA before jumping on a plane to NYC. He’s there for a week of sight-seeing with his lovely wife before I follow him for work. That left me with a productive week where I integrated the […]
