Andy Murray

The other day Andy Murray announced his retirement this year, probably in Wimbledom where he has had the most success, 2 slam titles.

I haven’t been watching tennis for a long time. 10 year back when I was still in middle school, I watched so many tennis matches (ok, now you know my age).

I was living in China and I could stay up very late for some important tournaments such as Wimbledom, etc. I remember sometimes I slept during the exams or classes because of that.

Andy Murray was one of my favorite tennis players. Later I went a couple of time to Shanghai Masters (was back then the ATP final) to see him and other players.

Back then I really hoped that one day I could go to watch tournaments such as Wimbledom, Roland Garros, etc. Now I live so close to those tournaments but I already lost my interest in tennis matches somehow, except I really want to kill some time. Maybe my life wasn’t as exciting back then, or maybe I’m getting old.

But anyways this Andy Murray announced his retirement. I think maybe this year I’ll watch some more tennis and maybe go to Wimbledon if I can have some spare money by then. Australia Open is around the corner.

Do you sometimes watch tennis, Steemians?

前两天听说安迪穆雷今年要退役了。嗯,心情复杂。照理说,我不看网球也很久了,但是想起曾经,10年前吧,我上中学的时候(暴露年龄?)那时候熬夜看的一场场比赛。我到现在都记得07年温布顿费纳决赛,看到凌晨5点?爸妈当时半夜醒来看到我还在激动万分看比赛都惊呆了🤯,那天上午还有化学还是什么考试,我直接考场睡了起来,考了个几十分也不记得了,反正不及格哈哈😄

那场太荡气回肠了,老费一度情绪激动跟主裁吵起来,最后还是赢了。我其实从来不是穆雷的粉,我比较是老费的粉,还有一些其他人,我博爱。但是安迪我还是挺喜欢的,记得后来去了几次上海大师赛看现场,当时觉得太开心了,那时候开心真容易啊!

记得安迪人很高,嗯还蛮帅的当时,诺乐人也很好,还给了签名,不过现在也找不到了。后来一段时间老费低迷的时候我还黑了诺乐一阵…那时我常想要是哪天可以去温布顿或者罗兰加洛斯就好了!

而现在我住的离法国英国都很近,却早就没了热情,可能年纪大了吧。以前一直说哪天老费退役不管在哪里我都会去看吧,现在老费依旧稳坐前三,诺乐也紧随其后,开始了30+新巅峰?而穆雷却要退役??

想想他的职业生涯还是挺悲情?算悲情吗?不管了反正今年币市那么低迷,有空偶尔看看网球比赛吧,澳网就要开始了!你们看网球吗?聊聊吧!

Steemit.com censored @thedarkoverlord? Steemit审核敏感账号?怎么回事?

The other day I saw someone resteemed a couple of posts with the title “Press Release 04 – “9/11 Papers” MegaLeak Checkpoint”, written by @thedarkoverlord.

I haven’t got time yet to check those posts out. Honestly politics doesn’t really interest me that much either. But when I decided to check the account out today, I found out Steemit.com deleted the account, or more precisely, censored it.

See at https://steemit.com/@thedarkoverlord.

But it’s Steem blockchain, nothing can be deleted. That’s the beauty of Steem, and

Steem is not Steemit

Because you can still reach the page via for example,

https://steemd.com/@thedarkoverlord

https://busy.org/@thedarkoverlord

and more other UIs as well.

I still haven’t read those posts yet, but my point is:

Steem is not Steemit! 

We all know that already, but today I finally feel it! 今天我发现Steemit审核了thedarkoverlord这个账号,这个账号前两天泄露了一些911的文件。

我对政治不是很感兴趣,看到有人转发,记了一下这件事,今天忽然又想到这个账号,于是打开一看,居然提醒不存在。 我一想怎么可能呢?Steem不是很区块链吗,怎么能删除?

于是我立马查了steemd和busy,才放心,果然在steemd和busy前端还是可以显示的。 这大概就是Steem去中心化厉害的地方,就是Steemit审核也没有,其他UI还是可以显示。 不是一直说Steem不是很Steemit吗,今天终于感受到了。

Memories at Mammy Wata in Assinie

Mammy Wata is an awesome place to stay in Assinie beach in Côte d’Ivoire.

As I probably already mentioned, this time I didn’t book any hotels in advance, so I was checking hotels and route all the way. The website I use to look up accommodations in CI? Simple, google maps. Basically after deciding the next stop, check the hotel scores and decided which one to take.

The location if Mammy Wata in Assinie seemed cool, it’s between the lagoons and the ocean. Funny thing was that there was literally nobody staying there at this time of the year so you can have the whole area to yourself and enjoy the quietness.

Mammy Wata is on the other side of the lagoon, the personeel will help you cross the river, but to get to the village of Assinie Mafia, there’s another tiver to cross. So better just relax in the island for a few days once you reach the hotel.

Location

Bamboo house under the sunset.

The studio was simple but I loved it.

They also have some bigger bungalows next to it.

The personel there was super friendly, had great experience. Because it was off season, there weren’t many restaurants open in the area. So you can tell him what you want to eat and he go to the village buy ingredient and cook.

Above are the food he made. I believe I already shared it before. It was awesome.

Beach is just 5 minutes walk away, most beach bars were closed and the beach was also quiet. I loved the quietness.

虽然科特迪瓦南部有很长一段海岸线,但是真正适合放松度假的地方并不多,大多是没有太多海滩的渔村,这很好理解,西非并不是非洲最适合度假的地方,跟平和温柔的印度洋相比,大西洋显得那么狂野,适合冲浪不适合优雅。

Assinie是科特迪瓦海边为数不多的度假海滩。即使这样,我去的时候依旧没什么游客,我很好奇12月圣诞节附近都不算旺季那什么时候才算旺季呢?

这次出门没有预定任何酒店,走到哪再考虑下一个城市和住处。就用Google地图这样原始的工具,还挺好用,选的几个酒店都还不错呢!

在Assinie这家Mammy Wata非常安静,地处在湖和海之中的一个飞地。地方很大,种满美丽的植物,非常原始自然美,都是竹屋,虽然条件简单没什么华丽的,但是我很喜欢!

Last day in 2018! New Year is coming.

Happy New Year, Steemians! Greetings from Côte d’Ivoire.

Starting the year in Hong Kong, ending in Abidjan, I have to say I loved 2018. It’s been a great year, although it could be even better.

Steem price is so shitty now and the whole Steem thing doesn’t seem to have much to look forward to at the moment. I’ve been busy travelling for the past 2 months, kinda missed all the DStors dramas. Except for that, doesn’t seem much going on for this platform.

2019 is just around the corner, new hope?

For myself, I just made some resolutions, although I almost never achieve my new year resolutions, it’s still good to have some.

Stop being stupid and read more books! That’s my resolution for 2019!

I think I’ll buy a kindle, there are so many different models, which one do you recommend to buy?

大家好!我依旧在西非,要在这里跨年了!

2018的最后一天你们都忙什么呢?每年我都象征性地定个新年目标,结果几乎没有实现过。但不管如何,2019就在眼前,我也来总结一下吧!

2018虽然是币市过山车又大瀑布的一年,但是对我来说这也是不错的一年:年初在香港跨年,最后一天居然在西非。这一年我去了想去了很久的西非和中亚,我一直把这两个地方当作这几年的计划,没想到这么快就实现了!

这一年我依旧没心没肺庆祝生活,总体依旧对这个世界失望又悲观,这一年依旧认得了一些很有意思的新朋友,得到了很多启发的同时,也做了一些傻事。但不管如何,2018要过去了,还是要欢送吧!

2019年一定会更好的。我也定了个小目标:要多阅读啊,这几年读的书太少了觉得人都快傻了!
