By about this time, one month from now, we will be on a train to Venice, on to Paris and then home to Canada.
Today also marks the official end to our school work and exams. Our last essay, on Wallerstein's World Systems, has been handed in and all we have left are two classes.
The heat of midday has finally broken, and thunder is rumbling over the city. It feels like rain but patches of blue sky are breaking through.
I'm trying not to stress about all the things I want to (or have to) do before we leave, and the decisions we have to make.
For now I'm going to watch the sky for lightning and put off thinking about how short a month really is.
