So, I think I will give this travel blog thing a try for all my friends who want to hear about what I've been doing, but don't necessarily want to bug with incessant emails all the time.  I have been in Lund since Monday and am slowly adjusting to the time difference, which is nine hours ahead of pacific standard and six ahead of eastern...but six or nine hours doesn't make much difference, I still end up falling asleep in the middle of the day and waking up raring to go at around 3 or 4 in the morning.  Lame. 

Anyway, tonight my corridor had a family dinner together.  We had five bottles of red wine, and a bottle of Martini to drink.  Yes, that's right - Martini is actually a liquor (vermouth) that the drink is named after as it is the signature ingredient. (a side note:  I have met my people - dinner with five bottles of red wine and a bottle of liquor and still ok to go out afterwards...yay!) I took charge of the veggie side of things as I am the only vegetarian on the floor.  Salad was requested so I made Food for Thought's signature salad for everyone: nice greens with feta, toasted hazelnuts, and dried cranberries.  And I made homemade rasberry vinegrette.  Everyone said they liked it alot. 

I think by now I have met almost all of the people on my corridor.  If you're interested, I am currently living within 100 feet (at most) of:  M. from Holland, L. from Germany, N. (totally not spelled right) from Portugal, M. and L. from Australia, C. from NY, J. from Ottowa Canadia, M. from Japan, a fellow whose name escapes me from China, M. from Germany, P. from Nice France, and E. from Nevada (?) Spain. 

Sorry, I should have taken pictures by now, I know, but it just hasn't happened yet.  I will try to take some tomorrow.  I like Lund alot so far, the weather reminds me of Portland during the rainy season, but more breezy and humid.  The people are nice here, but everything is way expensive.  I'd say anywhere between 10- 25% more expensive than in the US.  Not including alcohol...that expensivness is in a realm by itself. 

Ok, will report more tomorrow!  With pictures too hopefully!
