Hi there!
Greetings from a very snowy Zurich, Switzerland. Between more snow than the city has seen in 15 years which crippled the public transit system and the onset of the most recent lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19’s recent mutations, it has been a busy, crazy time. And if all that wasn’t enough, the world is finally about to get a new US president, hopefully without any more bizarre incidents. Who knows, maybe after tomorrow the ‘Great American Pivot’ that I wrote about in August 2020 will actually be put into motion.
I hope you enjoy this week’s edition, and be well!
