It took almost 30 hours to get to Lund, Sweden, and I'm just getting settled into my new digs here. It's been a very hectic and sleep-deprived first little while. For those who have been asking, here are a few (generally uninteresting) snapshots. Stay tuned - there'll be more to follow in the coming weeks and months. Me and the editor hope things are well with you, wherever you may be logging in from today.
Let's get this out of the way first - yes, there are many beautiful blondes here in Sweden.
The official reason why I'm here: graduate school, at Lund University. Established in the 17th century, LU's 45,000 students make it the largest post-secondary institution in the country.
Bicycles and cobblestones mix better in northern Europe.

Never thought I'd be back in student housing again but here we are. Note the IKEA furniture.
