Sitting in the car in an extremely humid and hot Kansas, not far from Manhattan, where I studied at K-State 03-04. It is a fairly typical â€śbeforeâ€ť scenario. Everyone walks around a bit restless, moving back and forth into the gas station and buying more and more junk food (I have eaten so much bad food the last week it is almost ridiculous!). Once in a while people come up talking to us, being a bit curious about what we do or worried by the fact what it means that we are there. What we consider our great joy is typically their nightmare â€“ a fact which is easy to forget sometimes.
The conditions for today looks really, really good so if youâ€™re reading this after 22:30 it might be fun to watch our webcam.. Right now we just sit and sweatâ€¦and wait.
