INTERPOL drop inter KL.

A few days ago our first – ah, no, second! – ever A-list guests dropped by our new office to see us. Ronald Noble, the Secretary General of INTERPOL, and our good acquaintance Noboru Nakatani, the head of INTERPOL’s new cyber division in Singapore, came to see us on a friendly visit that resulted in the official announcement of our cooperation to more effectively fight cybercrime on a global level.

We of course showed them round our new, not quite finished place of work, whose design and décor they kindly complemented. They were introduced to and joshed with some of our top experts, checked out the virus lab and the woodpeckers in it, and held with us meetings of both business and pleasure flavors. They were impressed; and from our side – we too were left with only positive impressions.

Calling all cyberswine – watch out! INTERPOL has joined the global hunt for all you lot. So I reckon now might be a good time to give up once and for all your malevolent maliciousness, repent, and go good and get nice before it’s too late!

So, if last Thursday evening anyone was annoyed the heck out of by a blue flashing light on a nice shiny sedan holding up traffic on Leningradskoe Shosse, well… apologies! For just that once it won’t have been the usual servants of the state and all their “VIP” hangers on. That will have been the world’s No. 1 international policeman leaving KL.

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 6.

G’day possums! Herewith, the penultimate post in what has turned out to be a bit of a marathon travelogue series from down-under… After lunch after our morning adventures on our last full day here, it was finally time for some retail therapy! But not in the traditional sense of mall-traipsing + inevitable food-court submission, naturally; […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 5.

Time to move from all things on-land to all things just off it – to the more attractive sections of coastline, for we were told the best natural charms of Kimberley lie on or near its shoreline. From Broome (the region’s ‘capital’ if you missed it earlier, also our base) the nearest bit of awesome […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 4.

G’day possums! Back. In the outback… The next point of call on our tour or northwestern Australia was the Tunnel Creek National Park, around half an hour’s drive from Windjana Gorge. Tunnel Creek itself runs through a natural cave cut into the limestone that was once the Devonian reef here under the ocean. Tourists come […]

Hi all! After our first, somewhat tame forays into the wonderful wizard corner of Oz called Kimberely, it was high time we headed to the hellishly hot central part of the region – into the savanna and nearer to the Great Sandy Desert. For there’s plenty to see there too… Now, if you were to travel […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 2.

G’day folks! I’m back – with tales from the outback… In today’s installment, a bit of narrative, but mostly just lots of pics – both from up in the air and on the ground. The landscapes here are stupefying. Endless horizons and beaches, islands, savannah, rock formations, cliffs. There’s so much to take in… so […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 1.

By way of a preface: Without looking on the Internet, who can tell me which is bigger: the Moon or Australia? This is the first in a mini-series of posts on Kimberley, Australia! I’d heard a lot about this place. That it’s impressively beautiful, with scenic landscapes and fantastic views. But that it’s also huge, hard to […]
