Signs of the Season ...

Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/Wright Bros. Day are fast approaching ... A few local signs of the season:

I had my first two oral philosophy final exams this week ...

The area nearby my house has been turned into some sort of seasonal village (Leuvenuse Kerstmasfest) ... filled with venders selling crafts, waffles, fudge and hot wine ...

A stage with choirs and a PA system blaring Bing Crosby ad nauseum ...

Some of my Spanish friends are very cold despite being dressed warmly ...

All signs that the year and my time in Leuven is drawing to a close ...

Hey Neil,

I wish me and Cas had made it up there, it looks like a lot of fun. I kept talking about the bug on the needle but now I will have to show her through your blog entries. Your pictures of Paris look cool, we'll have to post soon.
See you in a bit.
