Teaching and Going Home

Spent 5.5 hours on site in Wales today and 7 hours by car, train and plane to get from there to Skavsta airport. I’ve got another couple of hours by bus and train before I’m home. The trains I rode in the UK were on time but often did not leave from the platforms indicated by the online trip planner.

No big news on site today. I did some topless deturfing in the sun and taught a bright student to use a metal detector. Funny how much wordless knowledge you accumulate and spell out only when teaching. “Grab clod, wave over dish, listen, divide clod, wave, listen, toss quiet half, repeat. Close your fist when you wave the clod over the dish or you’ll fling the object away. You’ll find it by ear, not by eye. It’ll look just like a piece of stone until you clean it.”

    Sounds like you got lucky there, anyway!
