Master thesis IV

Time flies. The last post was about my trip to Rome, but until now already three weeks have passed. The Easter weekend was not so spectacular, we had brunch on Sunday morning and on friday Livia invited me and Urs for dinner at her place. I watched some movies, City of God for example and Up In The Air with George Clooney. This movie was actually one of the best movies that I've seen recently and that is obviously not only my opinion as it also won a Golden Globe.

Yesterday evening I was in Zurich together with Sophie and Marcus, a student from Stuttgart. We met pretty early as we wanted to go to the Future is Now festival but hadn't bought any tickets in advance. So we waited in front of Exil, where we later would see Richard Dorfmeister spin his discs. Some acts didn't even made it to the festival because all the airspace over europe was closed due to the volcano Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. But they were not the only one that were affected. I knew so many people that either could not leave for their holidays and meetings and conferences or they could not return back. I even heard the story, that a plane from Venice left 50 minutes earlier than scheduled, so that it could land in Zurich just before the airspace was completely closed. This is an event nobody would ever have imagined could happen. But it shows how vulnerable we as a society are, if things we take for granted don't work anymore.
