OK, time for work. Before taking the bus, I could not help myself and stopped at the kiosk to get some nice cappuccino.
and some fresh pressed orange juice to go, since the oranges just smelled to good. This little luxury costs me around 40 NIS, let’s see how long I keep that up.
From the stop at the A4 its a short walk to the North entrance of BIU. However, 30° Celsius and 70% humidity make it noticeable.
So then I enter the engineering building (map).
And set up shop at my desk in the acoustics lab.
After a while, some other researchers entered (it’s lecture-free time and holidays, so quite a few people are away). Everyone greets me very friendly and has some advice on sightseeing and living in Tel Aviv.
The air conditioning is so powerful that it is almost to cold, but it’s definitely preferable and makes working easier if not at all possible.
Apart from that, I work on my current paper and thesis. In between there are some discussions with coworkers on our respective research and possible collaborations, as well as on technical issues.
It feels good to have no other duties like teaching, especially when a flock of students appears in order to flood one of my coworkers with questions. Been there, done that.
In the evening, I return to Rothschild for some quick shopping and finding a new place to eat.
