countdown time

The last few weeks have been pretty busy, or so it seems. I was in Prague for a few days and now have a new understanding and appreciation/hatred for the obnoxious American tourist. But the city is fascinating in a way that only Prague can be, and I made it to the airport in time for my flight despite the crazy hail storm and the non-functional transportation. This last weekend I went to another German-American Clubs seminar, this time in Tübingen. That is perhaps the quintecential German city. Tübingen is a small historical university town with a peaceful river on which there are gondolas, in one of the greenest and prettiest parts of Germany. Seems like a wonderful place to study for a year; I’m jealous of the kid who was placed there.

The best news I’ve had in a while was finding out that while I was in Prague that the parents of the Moroccan guy next door moved out and went back to Morocco. Apparently they were on a two month vacation…in Frankfurt… But that means the floor no longer smells constantly of onions and there’s no slamming of doors all day and all night long.

I promise I am going to get a haircut tomorrow. It’s long overdue. And I also promise I’m going to get started on some of the million papers and presentations I need to do. Right. I’ll try to put up pictures of various things soon, but that’ll only work if I’m able to log in which seems to be impossible more often than not.
