Again it's been a long time since I've posted anything here, but in the meantime some of you have seen and commented on the pictures I put up on flickr. As you might have guessed, we just moved into a new apartment (actually a really old apartment, built around 1912). I really like the comments that have been written, Paul and Carolina. And just for clarification: "Wohnzimmer" means living room, "Aris Zimmer" is Ari's room, and "die Küche" is the kitchen. Anyway, we really like the place, and we're almost finished getting everything unpacked, set up, and liveable. (About time, too: we've been here for a month and a half now, but these things take time.)
On another note, we're planning to come to the States this summer. If everything goes as planned, we'll fly to San Antonio around the end of July and stay at my mom's for a while. Then off to LA for a mix of research in film archives and libraries and more touristy stuff. If I get some extra funding from the people who pay my dissertation scholarship, we might make it out to New York or maybe Chicago, too (again, there are a couple of relevant research opportunities). Maybe we can meet up with some of you while we're in Texas. I'll keep you posted about the plans for the trip.
Hope everyone's doing well.
