Foreign tongues in familiar places

I have transmogrified over the Summer of 2007. I no longer live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland but have taken up a position at Cambridge, England studying Charles Darwin's geological collection and writing.

After lurking for far too long, I have also resurrected my Bookcrossing site.
