In the Air

Not so long ago, one of us took a flight on a low-cost Turkish airline and found out that they’re famous for their in-flight safety videos. Given that most people have heard the standard instructions many times, we thought we’d focus on what’s actually being said and how they’re saying it. Watch out for the cute video!

We’re back at All at C after a very long Christmas break! We’ve been kept very busy with different projects but hope to make up for our lack of updates over the next couple of months. So, to start off, and given that it’s still winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, we thought this amazing (but real!) gym class from Sweden would be topical.
