d2: metro, baggage


Things learned today: (1) you have to stamp your own ticket when you get on the subway, which isn't underground all that much anyway. I assume that there would be a fine for not having validated your ticket if confronted with a random inspection, but it really seems to be a matter of being a good citizen. (2) bags at stores and supermarkets are not included in the purchase price. I expect that this might be an incentive toward responsible stewardship of the environment. (3) The stove in my apartment requires a lighter to start the burners.

Other than that, I overslept, spent the day learning about doing things in the lab, went on another mission to the grocery store to buy food to cook for dinner, unpacked suitcases, and videoconferenced into a meeting in Seattle. iChat is pretty neat like that.

Eventually, I will do some sightseeing.
