Up in the Himalayas, the Bechos Online Platform, and Ornskoldsvik Joins the Loop
Presentations HP Kuhnert went on a hiking trip to the Himalayas in Nepal, and in this richly illustrated presentation (in German, from PKN PKN Aalen Vol. 4) he shares his travel experiences and his impressions from a country that is so very different. The photos will make you want to experience these beautiful landscapes first-hand. "Bechos" means "single and with children," but it's also a social meeting platform for single parents on the internet. In this presentation (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 14), Yersu Kalaba shows how it is being used to share ideas and problems that relate to being single with children, and how it is developing through its members. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with the poster you see pictured above designed by Michelle Hanevold, for the upcoming PKN Bemidji Vol. 13. Today's additions also include PKN Innsbruck Vol. 1 and PKN Mendoza Vol. 5. Photos You all know about the PechaKucha Night city loop, right? It's the slideshow of photos from different PKN cities that plays at all PKNs (before the start, during the break, and after it's all over), and it gets updated with new cities when we receive our first photo from one of their events. Pictured above is a peek at last week's PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, and that's the photo that we're including in the next update to the city loop. Calendar Today's (June 19) events are PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2 and PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Tomorrow, look for the following PKNs: PKN Risor Vol. 2, PKN Glasgow Vol. 8, and PKN Brighton Vol. 15.
