More laundry and packing and reading of A Concise History of Greece. Tidying things up in general, as a means of distracting myself from Roman history and the minutiae of Greek grammar. Also looking wistfully at the three library books I must return tomorrow; I’ve had them for six weeks, but have scarce made a dent in them, such is my perdition. Shuffled photographs into my Blue Guide to Rome. Overcast and toneless, colder, but no snow.
