This blog has been neglected for a while, and it will have to be for a while longer as I'm off to Amsterdam on Wednesday and then back next week to slog again, rewriting, editing, fact-checking my 10,000 words and bibliographies. Then when that's all handed in, the work doesn't stop as the dissertation titles need to be confirmed and approved, and an outline and proposed references laid out.
But for now, after a long day working at the university library, it is time to relax and take a breather for the sun is out, and the last of that arctic wintery week seems to be over - the sun's out, the coats are off and sunglasses on, people were lazing about on the grass on campus, cafes have dragged their chairs and tables outside. It's a lovely warm 14 deg evening. I'm just glad to be out of the library.
Meanwhile, the class had its all too occasional dinner, this time with pre-dinner drinks at The Font and then tapas at Casa Don Carlos in the Lanes.
Lighting was bad but the food was good!
The most delicious (and dramatic) dish of the day - chorizo flambed in rum.
