So my data collection started last year, which btw, I didn’t say anything about it, so here it goes:
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE 🙂
During the first moments I already visited some bureaus and interviewed 16 fingerprint examiners. Some from Netherlands, some from Germany and some in the UK.
It has been amazing to change some ideas, and to discuss the guidelines with the people who actually need to ‘follow’ them.
After the break I returned to work, and was about to do another visit, this time in Beijing, China – yes(!), China! 😀
However, weather conditions made me stay in Instabul, wherw I was not – at all!! – expecting so much snow!
I took so advantage of this two days to finish a doc I needed for my meeting with the Probation Review, and worked a bit on the interview translations. Took meals at different times and have slept also at weird hours in order to get in China without so much jet-lag… So for me now it’s 3am 😐.
Here I am, waiting for a shuttle to take me to the airport… And fingers crossed, I will be able to make it and visit the Chinese bureau in Beijing!
See you all soon!
