Elisa, in Aachen, Germany:

Joining the call to post a photo of where I'm usually sitting when contributing to @global_voices :) Left: Old DIY jewellery box and old painting of Fela Kuti by me, postcard of Crete, old diaries and notebooks (damn, a lot of old stuff). Centre: Broken whiteboard (not old, just cheap) with a postcard of the work of art by Lidia Lidia called Madonna and Child, kindly sent by Paula Goes, some photos from friends and a diagram of the German prepositions.
Right: I keep my coffee warm for hours with this cool widget, a dream come true my hub gifted me.
