It’s weird, for a while I was really struggling to find “firsts” for my challenge but lately they’ve just been presenting themselves.
Thus, today’s first wasn’t something I arranged in order to have done something. Rather, it happened anyway and just serves as a pretty neat “first”: today, I met Dieter Reiter, the mayor of Munich. Only briefly, of course, but we shook hands and talked for a few minutes (in a group).
We approached him at a party event in order to pitch some ideas we’ve got for our association. He was so friendly and approachable and really listened to us. That, combined with the brilliant speech he gave, has reassured me once again that he is a great mayor for this great city.
