The seminar went well, despite my coughing intermissions. And i ate a lot after that. I noticed that the cough went off somehow when i am eating, that is a lovely option. When others went on with their celebration and fun, i went out of the building and had some photo shoot. I always love these opportunities, and coughing was not active also when i was shooting. It was also a welcome sign!

Left: balloons decorate the walls and posts. Right: a high-rise nest, an elongated bird's nest inside a dense polyscia plant. I guess the nests are just added there each season with the present nest on top making it very long through time. I was not able to take the owner's photo, it suddenly leaped out and far when i went to look.
