Istanbul, Istanbul, Istanbul-Rome?
That is what the Tunisian customs agent asked Nasser Ghazi, Goksin Bakir, Selcuk Uzun and I as we stood in customs on our departure from Tunis. Nasser had the idea that we all travel through the customs together, so the customs agent was confused since Nasser, Goskin and Selcuk all were traveling to Istanbul and I was traveling to Rome. I tried to explain that by Monday night we all would be in Barcelona together. Needless to say we got through and began our journey to TechEd.
I have arrived in Spain for TechEd and the Imagine Cup. I have always been committed to Universities (see yesterday's blog), so the Imagine Cup is special for me. Tonight is dinner with the other judges (I think there are 5 of us from around the world) and the organizers of the event. The competition gets heated tomorrow (Monday June 30.) You can follow here in my blog or you can check out the team specs here.
