1.) The weather is really nice. It's cool enough to need a jacket, and rather windy, but there's a lot of sun, too. Hope it lasts!
2.) I'm planning to try to swim for this Masters team in Gouda, about 20-25 minutes west of Utrecht. I'm just waiting for the coordinator to e-mail me back with the practice times so I can incorporate that into making my academic schedule on Monday (classes start 1 Sept). There are also two 5k open water races in canals (in Vlissingen and Oosterhout) which I might try to do, but I'm not sure about those yet.
3.) Harvard and Brown STILL do not have their 2006 applications up. Oh, well, I suppose it doesn't matter... I'd rather do that stuff on my own computer, anyway; attachments would get complicated otherwise.
4.) Had I known about this UCU option last time I was here, I bet I would have done it!
