In a couple of hours we're hopping a night train from Berlin to Krakow, Poland, where we'll be spending three days (including the day trip to the concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau).

I'm going to miss my 23c3 con assault crew. Shout out to [livejournal.com profile] artkiver, [livejournal.com profile] dymaxion, [livejournal.com profile] foxgrrl, Hikari, [livejournal.com profile] ioerror, [livejournal.com profile] shephi: you guys are the best.
