I am in the middle of PACKING, which I hate. I wrote once about my hatred of traveling in the post Traveling Checklist. I plan to panic all week.
Meantime, I am doing some last-minute work at the Museo de Medicina, where I am finding lots of great stuff in journals there (they have some of the Boletin del Ministerio de Prevision Social!!!--I know, I'm a total nerd). I'm also thinking back on how much I have accomplished with this research trip, despite unexpected interruptions and distractions.
I was going to try to count the number of images that I have taken, but that was just way too overwhelming. So, instead I checked the size of my various folders from the trip.
I have taken enough images to fill 31 gigabytes of space on my hard drive. Plus I bought about 45 years' worth of Comercio on CD from Cotocollao--that alone is 165 gigabytes, saved on an external hard drive b/c there isn't enough space left in my computer.
There, I feel better now. I got a lot of stuff. Now I just have to find time to read it all... (Of course, Howard asked if I got 30 GB in the past couple of days right after I wrote that, and he rather deflated my mood.)
Hoping to survive the week and the trip back home so that I can wake up in my own bed on Sunday...
