toodling along

YAY! Finally Sooks - my busy london lawyer friend has taken time out from her schedule to come to Milan and make a quick pit-stop in Turin.

Of course, she couldn't have picked a busier time for me, because I am now full time working at the ILO center. One year ago, I could have sneaked her inside for lunch, but now the new policy has gone nuts for security - the UN cluster can only be entered with a pass at the security checkpoint - EVERYONE has to show their pass, and they have even locked the drains - I am not kidding! . They must have recieved some kind of wierd death threat or something.

Oh well. The only great news is that i now have free access to Lexis in the library. The non-lawyers will wonder why this is a big deal. Only the lawyers who use it will understand why I love it so much (and use it all the time)...

Now how would you know that the drains are locked? Been going around trying to pry open the drain covers, have we?
