It's been a week since I relocated to Amsterdam, to take up a position at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The position is for three years in this beautiful city. I was last here in 1999 and fell in love with the people and the city then. Things are of course pretty hectic as I go through the paperwork of relocation, together with tying up loose ends back in Australia (ahh, the joys of superannuation and taxation administration!), so these photos are very much some simple snaps, I hope to be posting a bit more frequently in the future.Apologies for the mess...Two views from my window
hey, what does a cockadoo do?
Another hectic week.
I've now transferred from my initial landing spot in North Bondi to a permanent (hopefully) abode in Chippendale, quite close to Sydney's central business district. It's a terrace house, a popular style of two story building dating at least to the start of last century, although most buildings are probably mid-30s.
A view from the terrace.
Phew, a few days of flights, interrupted sleep, meeting people, beers, intermittent net connections, NYC work issues, Medicare cards, phone cards, resume updates and job applications conspired to keep me incognito. This blog is an attempt to plug that dark hole all my time seems to disappear down...
