First, supersized hotel-rooms:
I don't know why I suddenly rate two double-beds, but I won't complain!
Ran around a bit in the sweltering heat.
|Hot hot hot humid hot. Also: barrel-distortion|
What astounded me most was the Barnes&Nobles I peeked into: A whole wall with religious books. I couldn't even get them all on my camera, so you'll have to take my word for it. But it wasn't just one or two shelves, it must have been over a thousand books, everything from the bible to How to groom your dog like a Christian (not an actual title, although it should be) . I don't know if you could even find a bible in a normal bookstore in Austria or Switzerland. I knew that they take their religion seriously in the states, but it is one thing to know that in an abstract way, and another to really experience it.
Freemaison historic district: Very quaint.
|Quaint like a quilted quail in a quagmire.|
This little guy was singing his heart out, then dancing a little bit in the air, then back to singing. I feel I should now the species, but I don't.
|or... is that bastard mooning me?|
Tomorrow morning I'll give my talk - wish me luck!
