    Done with the phone buying for my parents. Went with a Moto G7 Play and a Moto X4 (old phone but it was on sale, still solid).

    They don't mind old phones, and actually wanted them for international use. Also learned that my student discount is no more lol.
    I guess I'm going to miss my student discounts as well. There isn't a thing that I haven't checked if it has one lol.

    Our summer so far has been pretty crap. Weeks of very high winds (unusual for Paris) cloudy days and rain.

    But finally, it appears summer has finally made it's way here. Warm, blue sky day with little to no wind.

    It's a relief.

    It's nice! Apple music, apple (for iPads, Macs) spotify, and sometimes you get it when buying stuff. Amazon too, for prime student. I don't know if it is region based though.

    Any hot sauce aficionado's here? I tried a really good (And hot!) Ghost Pepper sauce last night with my pasta.
    Never without here. The one I must have an open and reserve bottle of, is green Cholula. OMG. We've used the red forever, and it's still a staple, even look for the larger bottle; but, the green one is a more recent -few-year find, and it is now the favorite of any of our sauces -great on just about everything: eggs, and grilled or broiled salmon, for instance. I've only seen it in small bottles, and only one lovely store in town carries it, but I like taking the small bottle to restaurants, even. NOT especially hot, but SUPER tasty.

    Just had my cup of coffee for the day. The Nespresso is working out really well. It is a good middle of the road compromise. Also since I got the original line the pods are about 70 cents each. One of these days I will get a Gaggia and ground beans but for now this will do fine.

    I haven't heard from him in a bit but had been meaning to contact him to see if he's ok.

    I'm guessing he needed a break from that last round of discussion.

    I believe he mentioned vacation...?

    One thing I've come to realize is, no matter where you are, the easiest thing to do is to blame minorities for the problems you have.
    Now, muslims on Balkan are not really minority, there's around 1.5 mil here. But, taking in consideration how many christians/orthodox there are, we're largely outnumbered.

    Serbia is having serious issues with corona infections right now (not that we're not having them, but it's nothing like they have) and the spike came just after the elections. There were huge mass gatherings. Both with the ruling party and the opposition, but of course the first ones had way more people going out on the streets for them (many against their will, but that's a different topic).

    Now, if you ask me, the reason for this spike is quite clear. Should be for everyone.

    But the president (who won again, by a freakishly huge margin) blamed it on, wait for it, muslims. Because of the Eid. Which was like a month ago. And muslims are maybe 3% of the total population there.

    It definitely wasn't his rallies. Nope.

    Also, Croatia says it was Bosniak travelers that brought the virus to them and infected them.

    WTF is wrong with the world.

    Also, there are one of the biggest protest in Serbia that the country has seen right now for various reasons (some justified and sane, some not so much), and police brutality is ever-present.
    Most of the social media comments are calling for the police to relive their stress on the immigrants if that's what they need (from Africa and Asia), rather than their own people.

    Again, what the actual fu**.
