Week 1 – i’ve come to the right place

What can I say other than that the transport institute consists of a bunch of the nicest people around – particularly Jenny (who refuses to be photographed), the manager of the civil engineering graduate program, psychologist, travel agent, and whatever comes up in a day (and that’s quite a lot), has been nothing but kind and helpful. Same goes for Geoff Rose. Anyway, more info on the group can be found here. I have been placed in the temporary vacant office of teh department head – not bad! Meanwhile I’m also going to move to another place to live and tomorrow I’ll meet with Winnie Daamen who’s been in Adelaide the past few months.

The biggest challenge now the jetlag has slowly faded away is to make a plan and get some research done… (and in the meantime score the 5804 exams and assignments).

Enjoy the photo’s below (the weary look on my face has everything to do with jetlag – please forgive me ;))

Settled – well almost

Back to the student days – just settled into my appartment for the coming weeks on Arnott street, oposite the Clayton / Monash campus. many thanks to Geoff Rose (head of the transport department here) for showing me around and getting me up and running. This being the first day without an afternoon nap I kind of feel :crazy: if not 88|. However, the fact I’m writing this post proves that I was nonetheless capable of setting up a prepaid wireless usb account thingy with Australian telco Optus using Geoffs telephone number and drivers’ license number (no, they don’t need anything, you just pay and go … NOT – telco’s are the same everywhere). Tomorrow then the first office day, I look forward to that!

cheers all

Hans
