It has been great to be back in Europe again. It is great to be able to wander around Dublin or Basel without a map. It has also been fun to have people give reference points like statues to meet up at, and know exactly where they are talking about. I even had one friend give me the wrong address for the Indian diner, but I knew exactly where he meant. I have been asked by several people for directions, and have been able to point them in the right direction. The oddest request was a man who asked me how to get to Trinity College about a fifty yards from the entrance to the college. I pointed to the building right across the street, and laughed as he walked off.

Ah, good to hear the German radio stations still understand good music. Meet me at the statue where the guy's sitting on the toilet in the Black Forest.

And I felt so bad about giving you the wrong address that I let you pay for the Indian meal. Generosity abounds in this part of the world!

I guess that is what I get for having lunch with a doctor of economics. They always know how to save a dollar/franc/euro or what ever the currency of the day is.
