Boston to Nuremberg for $315

I was toying with the idea of going to Nuremberg in October for IndieWebCamp, as all the cool kids will be there.

I’ll be in Boston on October 19, so I looked for Boston to Nuremberg flights that evening. To my surprise, I found a one-way fare of $315 Canadian on Kayak.

Unfortunately it’s a marathon Boston to Reykjavik to Copenhagen to Milan to Nuremberg routing that takes 35 hours and would put me in Nuremberg with IndieWebCamp all but over.

Young Lovers

While I was emptying the leak buckets in the attic this evening, I came across this photobooth picture of Catherine and me. It must have been taken in 1992 or 1993—25 years ago!—as neither of us is wearing eyeglasses.

How young we were; literally half a lifetime ago.

Mucem in Marseille

David Noel recommends a visit to Mucem when in Marseille.

The museum has a better-than-usual focus on accessibility:

Recognising the need to surround itself with experts in disability so as to consider and create a global accessibility policy, from the outset of the project, the Mucem formed a committee bringing together Marseille-based associations representing disability. Together, they considered the physical, sensory and cognitive accessibility of the museum.

The museum includes a “tactile and sensory” route through its galleries:

The objects selected for this tour convey the fundamental points of the exhibition’s main themes. In addition, its tactile, sensory dimension allows all visitors to comprehend the objects, through both their intellects and their senses.

I wish all institutions placed such emphasis on meeting all of their patrons where they stand.

(I met David years ago on a visit to SoundCloud; he was one of the most welcoming people I’ve ever met; I take his recommendations seriously).
