  • Bryan Appleyard double in The Sunday Times. One piece on Iain McGilchrist (Master and His Emissary book), another on global warming. #
  • There were 4 - FOUR - minarets in Switzerland before the ban today.
    I'm atheist through and through, but a ban on a STRUCTURE is ridiculous. #

  • Kate Voegele and Katie Vogel both play London on Tuesday night. Not going to either; but will someone be at the wrong gig? #
  • And we are there, Bergen-Oslo by train, on telly, in real time. And on Twitter in not so real time. Some good music, some crap. #
  • Signalling problems as we approach Oslo. Further delays. #
  • Pic 18 Bergenbanen documentary. Long unscheduled stop at Nathionaltheatret to the sound of Doobie Brothers.
    http://twitpic.com/rd8tk #

    More urban minute by minute. http://twitpic.com/rd1na #
  • "We will be at Hokksund station in 5-6 minutes" just announced on tannoy.
    So much better than Southern's "soon at" (but small country). #
  • Australian and other tourists all praising the scenic trip on Bergensbanen.
    Regret: I never took Flåmsbanen while living in Bergen. #
  • Pic 15. There's a kid's playroom on the train. But looks like kids are bored and watching telly. Meta-telly then? http://twitpic.com/rcwju #

  • In case you are concerned about my mental health, reading The Guardian (a cause for concern in some circles I guess) on board the "train". #
  • Seven hours or so the trip from Bergen to Oslo.I once travelled Bergen-Oslo-Trondheim-Bodø by train. 24 hrs in Bodø and then back to Bergen. #
