    The Guardian for this meeting was Darren Islar. The comments are by Darren Islar.
    I was already there, when Calvino came in, but was afk to grab myself a cup of coffee, which I really need in the morning. Calvino obviously needed something else:

    Calvino Rabeni: brb, need mango
    Darren Islar: hey guys
    Darren Islar: how's the mango?
    Calvino Rabeni: I had papaya instead :) Mango for later
    Darren Islar: ah

    Cal just arrived in Thailand so we start talking about his first experiences, which are actually quite funny

    Darren Islar: how is Thailand?

    --BELL--

    Calvino Rabeni: Slow computer - somewhat unreliable link
    Darren Islar: that's okay, don;t mind taking it slow
    Calvino Rabeni: One c h a r a t a t i m e
    Calvino Rabeni: A few typical misadventures
    Darren Islar: how so?
    Calvino Rabeni: LIke, a taxi driver said - what hotel?
    Calvino Rabeni: And I said - No hotel
    Calvino Rabeni: So he was taking me to a hotel called the "Noh Hotel"
    Darren Islar: hahah
    Darren Islar: Are you there with a friend?
    Darren Islar: can you tell something about Thailand?
    Darren Islar: I'm very curious
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, Do not arrrive on April 13th
    Calvino Rabeni: As I did, which is Thai new year
    Darren Islar: ah
    Darren Islar: so crazy city
    Calvino Rabeni: Unless you want to play and get very wet
    Darren Islar: oh?
    Calvino Rabeni: Big fun for everyone
    Calvino Rabeni: Traffic is totally snarled
    Darren Islar: I can imagine
    Calvino Rabeni: A mental snapshot - I have many, but here is one
    Darren Islar: tell
    Calvino Rabeni: Streets lined with water throwers, and the street filled with open cars
    Calvino Rabeni: someone tries to open the door to the car to throw in the water
    Darren Islar: you're cardoor?
    Calvino Rabeni: someone else, goes up to people who drive by, caresses their face lovingly with hands and smile, like blessing, then lets them have it with the bucket of water
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, we wrestled it shut again or else ...
    Calvino Rabeni: But later when we left the car, we got it then
    Calvino Rabeni: there is no escape :)
    Darren Islar: ow
    Darren Islar: so you got wet
    Calvino Rabeni: Totally, carrying all my belongings
    Calvino Rabeni: Like I said this is not the day to travel
    Darren Islar: :-)
    Darren Islar: you had something dry left?
    Calvino Rabeni: So some guy and his girlfriend were squirting me with water guns

    --BELL--

    Calvino Rabeni: So then when I looked frustrated she gave me the gun and I let them have it back
    Calvino Rabeni: Then the City turned off the water supply to stop the bedlam
    Calvino Rabeni: This happens every year at this time
    Calvino Rabeni: Play time for everyone :)

    Then somebody came in I had a long talk with, but being a private talk, I leave this part out, Cal meanwhile sneaking away to give space to this conversation
