Last night did that last-night-of-holiday thing and stayed up till 2am. We swayed with the rest of them at the closing gala. One of our number, C, had wisely bought a litre of Teachers at the airport, and because US campuses don't have bars, because of the age limits, I'm guessing, we were suddenly everyone's best friend: C met a guy who left Budapest exactly the same month as her; we heard Victor the security guard's story, worked out the difference between Reform and Liberal Judaism, talked a lot about Limmud, made new friends...

It's all getting a little twee. Sorry.

So I'm off to Manhattan, lunch with M (and, luckily, leaving my bag in her office, as there's no left luggage in the whole of Manhattan, since 9/11), a little shopping, maybe a gallery, maybe go back to JTS and see some more Cairo fragments. He said call anytime.

If I find an internet cafe, you'll be the first to know. What have you been up to?
