Hey Y'all. First time to check in on this site in ages. I'm still holding out in DC. Still doing intl event promotion / export promotion for a variety of US industries at William J. Kircher & Associates INC -- DC's 5th largest full service marketing agency.

I've been travelling a ton domestically for work and also just got back from a week in Duesseldorf checking out our competition. Currently I'm working for the following association-accounts: industries, plastics, cell phones-pagers-pcs, home building, supermarkets-retailing, packaging, golf, diagnostic products, and the American Chemical Society -- Isn't that thrilling.

Ralph and I are off for a week vacation to Hong Kong over Thanksgiving week. I'm also in the middle of a move from my previous townhouse to new digs at 1825 New Hampshire Ave NW WDC 20009 which is right on the corner with 17th St north of SAIS-DC. Phone #s are the same 202-265-4740 or 202-246-4749 (c-v) or 202-371-0700 (W). Hope all's well with everybody.

Ciao

Matteo

This is Thanos.

Hope that all is well.

I am sending you this e-mail from Greece and my address is thakaf@otenet.gr

I have joined the Greek diplomatic service after completing my military service (20 months!!) and am now in Athens following a training program. ... I have seen Marcus and Aygen when they came to Myconos to party and watch the world cup (in June). ...
