I'm a freelance software engineer, living and working in Belgium (Antwerp-Brussels area). My expertise is in C++, and in Tcl scripting. I have experience in many other technologies, and consider myself a generalist rather than a specialist. Besides programming, I am also interested in science, music, writing, and playing with my kids.

comment How can you write less to say more?
+1 for suggesting "refactoring" of technical documentation.

comment Tips for describing features of unusual place that I often visit
Another tip: Use all your senses. Not just visuals, but also smells, sounds, a taste in the air, a chill on the skin, etc. You already do this to some extent ("unusually quiet", "sound of second can"). Descriptions need not be all visual.
