Our five am world is a wonderful place. No cars. No noise. No crowds. Sophie, as you can see, continues to lose weight.
We receive a letter from the university telling us that the graduation balls will start in two weeks. They promise to keep the noise down and the 'sound equipment under control'. They make this promise every year ... but fail miserably. We rather enjoy living close by the festivities although for the unwary tourists in neighbouring AirBnB's the noise of the pipes and the reveling can come as a surprise.
Here's a wee taste of what lies in store. : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PStMByEit_U
