Monday, August 24
I started the day by cycling to the metro in bright sunlight.
Today was the first day that the students were at Arcada. The house was full of excitable crowds excitedly lost. There were mile-long queues for lunch.
It was also the first day that most of the staff were there. Most people were in shorts and a lingering holiday mood.
I spent a large part of the afternoon in a meeting planning to put the Media Masters MA online. I see problems on the horizon.
Now I am in Kamppi, walking towards the Aussie Bar where Naa spent Saturday night dancing. I have just delivered a signed copy of my thesis to Irma’s parents.
I will drop into Academic Bookshop, which is having a closing down sale, and purchase a Michael Moorcock collection for 2€.
