Dries is cleaning a roofdeck with the Boston skyline in the background, but then gets distracted and starts playfully spraying water into the air instead of cleaning.
Update from the upper deck crew: the roof deck is clean and ready for the Boston summer.

As Drupal Core Committers, we had an important discussion about our shared fear of breaking Drupal Core and its impact on end users and contributors. Despite it being a serious discussion, it also brought some lightheartedness with funny sticky notes, adding humor to the situation.

We recently organized a three-day Drupal Core Committer Offsite in Kingston, UK. Unfortunately, not everyone was able to attend in person. To ensure remote participants could follow along, Gábor took the initiative to make sure remote attendees could participate.

As a European living in the US, I really miss the outdoor terraces and pubs that are so common in many European cities. Although Boston has some options, it doesn't compare to the experience in most European cities.

Breaking news: a British man was seen sharing his churros with pigeons. Belgian man found this both intriguing and gross.

Caught in the act.
A woman is posing for a photo by leaning against a red phone booth, as a queue of people wait for their turn to take a similar picture.
The famous red phone booths near Westminster Abbey attract long lines of people waiting to take their photo with the booths and the Abbey in the background. It made me realize that "Top London telephone booth locations" is a thing.

About to kick off Acquia Engage London, the fourth customer conference of the Acquia Freedom Tour. So far, we've had events in Miami, Chicago, and New York.

A sushi chef is using a torch to sear sushi.
"No Relation" is one of my favorite restaurants in the South End of Boston. Their sushi is absolutely amazing, and I love watching the chefs prepare the food. Everything about "No Relation" - the food, the decor, and the service - reminds me of my trips to Japan. It's the closest dining experience to what I've had in Japan.

In Vermont, it's the season for making delicious maple syrup. We visited a 'sugar house' where they boil down the sap from maple trees to make it. The smoke rising from the large chimney added to the charm of the scene. I wish you could smell this photo!

Sun rays stream through the window of an old barn, casting a pattern of light on the floor.
The sun is shining through the Baby Barn. Even though there is still snow on the ground, it's a sign that spring has arrived. There is something special about the first warm rays filtering through a window after winter.
