Today was weird. I received an email late last night canceling our morning session of class today. It turns out that a member of the classics dept at Berkeley (colleague and friend to our instructors) was in a severe cycling accident and that things weren’t looking good for her. So class was low key and solemn.
On the way home, I saw someone playing Beethoven on the steel drum. It was very cool. I wished I had had a dollar at the time.
I am appalled at how unabashedly rude European tourists are.
