September is team building month in Foliovision. Every year we go on a trip and take a few moments to relax and enjoy the company of our colleagues' outside the office and to celebrate Alec's birthday. This year wasn't any different, so we went on a bike trip along the Danube to Foliovision's favourite spot, a lovely little beach just across the Devin Castle.
Foliovision's office doesn't have air conditioning. Normally it doesn't matter. It's about one week or ten days per year that the heat gets up to the uncomfortable level. It seems to be more and more days each year as this year we are now into the third week of heat right now.
In any case, last week was the second hot one. We had a birthday party scheduled for our programmer Riso and designer Janette on Thursday night. We moved it out to the banks of the Danube, opposite Devin Castle. For many on our team, it was the first time swimming in the might Danube, as in Bratislava the Danube is too fast and after Bratislava and into Hungary, the river is considered too dirty for safe swimming.
