Walk Of Life

Grand Central, New York City. July 2009.

All those moments will be lost in time, 
like tears in rain.

(Blade Runner)

Song title taken from the third track on "Brothers In Arms", the brilliant Dire Straits album.

So today was my first day at the excavation... 

I enjoyed it a lot... I worked hard, basically just digging through different layers of earth, about 60 to 80 centimetres deep for roughly six hours. Found some bits and pieces of pottery, probably from the 11th century AD, the supervisor said.

One of my college buddies who is working at the same excavation put in a lot of effort too, but just like in school, there's always a bunch of lazy guys and gals who sit in the shade most of the time. And this has only been the first day of the dig. We'll be working three weeks. Might as well think about another job if they're too much of a sissy to work them shovels and spades.

Have a great week!

are you able to take pictures there? would love to see some of the dig ^_^ and usually the ones that aren't willing to jump in and do the hard work are the ones that aren't passionate about what they're doing..

Exactly, Brooke! We had a discussion about that today... Like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I might take some pictures in the third week... if they're not happy about students taking pictures, it's already too late to fire them :-)
