Leicester, Leicester, rhymes with Chester. I’m in England for the first of a 3-week Fellowship awarded by SPLINT. (Next two weeks will be in May 2010.) The 8-hr time difference between here and California complicated yesterday but now things seeming slowly more sensical in my mind. I’m staying at the home of one of the faculty members in the geography department, Pete Fisher, a man whose name I have known for many years and whose books I have on my shelves, but I didn’t even connect the dots when I sat in his kitchen yesterday!
Off for some breakfast and to explore the city a bit.
