Re: Regrets?

I came here in August 2003 in order to get a degree that isn't offered in the UK or anywhere in Europe. So, it wasn't for any nostalgic reasons it was simply necessary. I grew up in 5 different...

I don't celebrate X-mas, but I'm going to sit on a plane back to Europe - 3 weeks winter break! I can't wait!

Re: Directions in NY

Take the Supershuttle (17$) but you might end up with a bunch of people who have their drop-off before you so it might take longer. But definitely a good option especially if you don't feel like...

Re: Dollar falls to record low

Perfect! I'm going home on the 25th and change some money to Dollar when I come back. Couldn't be better!

I read the Primo Levi book as well. It's really a good book. It gets even closer if you know that Primo Levi suffered from severe depressions all his life and finally committed suicide.

Re: Fingerprinting when arriving?

C'mon! You don't really want to imply that you have to make a choice between voting and voicing. That's ridiculous! You can do both and you know that.

Re: Fingerprinting when arriving?
