Hacked

Bättligorn from RiederalpA cou­ple of days ago, while on a trip to the Wal­lis Alps, my web­sites have been hacked. — For­tu­nately, I had good back­ups, so every­thing is online again.

Table Tennis: Action in Waldenburg

TTC-Waldenburg-11When I left the US, it was clear to me: I will con­tinue play­ing table ten­nis.  In the lit­tle neigh­bor vil­lage of Walden­burg, Basel­land Switzer­land, I found a ded­i­cated club where most of the play­ers are beat­ing the shit out of me.  — Although I’m loos­ing almost every game, I love the total­ity, veloc­ity, con­cen­tra­tion, quick reac­tion and strat­egy of table ten­nis.
