  • Some reading/Etwas zum Lesen

    Hamish Hamilton's Five Dials no. 26 has just come out. It is an elegant PDF and this edition is full of translations of German literature, although the main thing that has caught my eye so far is an article about secret ways to walk through London. 64 pages of good stuff. They apparently expect us to print it out. For walks from Gatwick, see kalebeul.

    I tried some Husten- und Bronchialtee recently when I had a cold, but it didn't seem to help, perhaps because I didn't believe in it enough. Tee (tea) has a wide mea ...

  • Lost luggage/Verlorenes Gepäck

    I've just been to London for a week, flying Lufthansa from Nuremberg with a change in Frankfurt. In both directions, my suitcase (checked-in baggage) did not make it. On the first journey, I was told the stopover in Frankfurt had been too short. The suitcase was delivered the next afternoon, about 24 hours after arrival.
