Well, it was more or less back to normal in terms of work, and catching up on things post quake. I didn’t seem to accomplish as much as I had hoped, but there are always slow weeks followed by busy weeks. I was teaching in the room pictured below on Thursday over in the law faculty in the old government building. This building dates from 1876, built of wood, though when you look at it from the outside you would never know. I noticed that there was one projector screen missing, a casualty of the quake. Glad I was not there at the time when it fell down!
Trying to capture the entrance…
On Friday I went to see ‘Stomp’. If you haven’t heard of it or seen it, then it is a sort of pretty unique combination of dance, acrobatics and showmanship, involving dance moves, percussion skills, buckets, mops, brushes and dustbin lids. I had seen it many years ago in Edinburgh (before it was famous!) and so thought it would be fun to go again. I have been collecting programmes from all my theatre trips since I was a child, so had to buy one for this event, even though it cost an astonishing amount of money.
An expensive programme
Anyway, the show was great fun, and a good way to end the week and start the weekend. It is quite amazing what can be done with kitchen sinks, brushes and other odds and ends! If you get a chance to see it, then do so.
The boys requested a ‘full English’ breakfast this morning, so I served up bacon, sausages, black pudding, mushrooms, beans and scrambled eggs, with some rolls on the side. It was hard to imagine eating again for the rest of the day, though we did manage some salmon fillets, giant ones of course, unlike the puny little things we used to get in Copenhagen. Misse Moj came in and stole one of the left over bits – such is the way of cats!
