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.

Kamchatka-2015 – warm-up.

My Kamchatka-2015 vacation began in the town of Paratunka. This is a location commonly used by tourists for spending the first night on the peninsula after flying in from afar, before setting off for their first full-fledged destination the next day. To the south of Paratunka are conveniently located two volcanoes, both of which are must-sees/climbs: Mutnovsky […]

Mission Impossible 5 – in KLondon!

I’ve been known to have a pop at the quality of Hollywood blockbuster movies released in recent years. But there’s a new film that bucks the trend, which I recommend everyone sees at the soonest! (But then I would say that)… This impossibly incredible film I’m talking about is Mission Impossible 5. So what’s so […]

South America Continuing our slow migration across the surface of the globe as per my Top-100, it’s now the turn of South America to show us what it’s got. And it’s got plenty… 18. Angel Falls, Venezuela The highest waterfall in the world; almost a kilometer of free-falling water. Haven’t been myself, but have heard rave […]

Kamchatka-2015 – top to bottom!

In my humble opinion, Kamchatka is the most fascinating and beautiful place on the planet. Bold statement, I know; but coming from a power-globetrotter like myself, maybe you won’t reject it out of hand? If you do – read the upcoming series of posts on this year’s An-Kam (annual Kamchatka), and let’s see if you haven’t […]

Kamchatka-2015 – aperitif.

“Further [vertically] up there, there’s a path!” – Our guide, Fyodr.   Hi all! Phew! Back to civilization from the harsh wilds of Kamchatka, and beginning the slow acclimatization back to modern city life and all its creature comforts. In all we trekked 315km on foot, and probably traveled thousands of kilometers in all-terrain vehicles […]
