As I went walking I saw a sign there and on the sign it said No Trespassing but on the other side it didn't say nothing, well, that side was made for you and me.
The North Rim, Grand Canyon, Arizona.
After a forest fire, pioneer species such as this blue one are the first plants to grow again. Picture taken near Grand Canyon.
I'm off to the German coastal city Wilhelmshaven tomorrow. Gonna take part in a weekend course about export and import trade on the North Sea coast in the first millenium A.D. - hope it's gonna be interesting, because it's a 210 kilometre drive, one way. I'm sharing my car with four friends and fellow students of mine so I won't stop to take too many pictures, I guess. However, I'll be back for another weekend at the end of July.
Concerning the plans for this summer, I can only say this much:
Excavation from the 19th of July - 6th of August. It's a Saxon burial ground. I'm looking forward to it because working in the field is what I'm studying archaeology for. I'm not interested in studying books all day long. You only get tired from doing hard work. When you're studying or writing for hours, you drink too much Coke or coffee and after a while you turn into an insomniac. Can't remember the last time I slept nine hours.
Road Trip around Denmark, Norway, and Sweden at the end of August / early September.
Probably going to a concert or two at Tonder Festival in Denmark, before heading across the Baltic Sea to Malmö (Sweden).
I won't be visiting Israel, although I did consider it. I'm not coming back to England either. I had to decide between visiting a familiar place and one I haven't been to before, so Scandinavia is where I'll be going.
Have a nice weekend.
