Last plane out of Europe

April 16, 2010 by Tracey S. Rosenberg

Well, not exactly, but when I was on my flight from Europe to the states, the pilot mentioned that a volcano had erupted in Iceland. Thankfully we breezed on past, and it wasn’t until the next morning (Pacific time) that I learned northern Europe had been grounded.

Hmmm, maybe this is time to return to my half-written ’embassy on Mars’ story?

Anyway, I am safely in California (please no earthquakes, eschatological though that might be), and today I will briefly be visiting the bookshops of Berkeley. Cody’s has, alas, long since departed, but Moe’s and Shakespeare and Company (obviously not THAT Shakespeare and Company) are still around, so I shall pay homage.

And, you know, buy some books. Because I may have just culled 450 from my collection, but that doesn’t have anything to do with acquiring new ones.
