from mumbai to milan
Barring any further family emergencies, I will be off to Italy (Rome, Turin, Milan, etc.) tomorrow for a two-week research trip. My laptop having not yet arrived, I will be blogging when and if I can get access to a computer, typically not a problem in the North but rather more difficult in Rome, which seems to take a pride in doing things all'antico. Then again, they pretty much defined the idea of antiquity, so I guess they must know what they're doing.
I'll be back in the U.S., with my accent refurbished and my work completed, on December 21.
