When the sun came up - I saw sunshine though not the sun itself- the quality of the light was like nothing I've experienced. I can't describe it yet, and as it is now past midnight and raining, I may have to wait a few days.
I'l be spending the weekend completing Fall quarter 'reports', getting over jet lag, and getting my cupboards stocked, getting a mobile phone arranged (I hope) and making sure I can watch the swearing in of President Obama (!) on Tuesday. Yes I will.
I am on GMT which means the same as London. When it is noon here it is 7 AM in Brooklyn, 6 AM in Chicago, and 4AM in Madras, OR.
I think that's all for the moment. When I am less tired I will try to describe my arrival and trip.
I start teaching on Monday at 830AM.
