I met with Dr. Richard Sheldon yesterday for lunch. Thankful to have such a brilliant mind reassuring me and telling me that I’m more than ready. Time to shake off those ghosts of inborn doubts, and get on to the business of truly preparing for this viva.

Not much else to report, other than a quick trip to the Imp pub last night, and talking with Barbara and Norman until the wee hours of the morning. I woke up late. Not till 9:50. At the uni, now… but before I plunge into work, thought I’d bring a quick update and some pics (all of which can be clicked for a larger image).

Backside of the Woodland Road complex. All the Edwardian buildings to the left are free standing of one another, all of them connected by the red, Japanese-style architecture. Kind of a habitrail.

The youth hostel.  Note the name, as "grain" has a long and troubled history in these parts.
