Turbulence in excess
My plant trip to the states was filled with turbulence from beginning to end. My flight went via Dakar to NY and we had maybe 2 hours total of the 18 hours turbulence free. My trip from NY to Detroit followed this pattern. I have arrived in Ann Arbor and tried to my admin out of the way, seems my paperwork has yet to go through and I have to wait til after Labor Day on Monday to get anything done. Tomorrow is the first football match between the Michigan Wolverines and Utah Utes. Don't ask, don't know. Today is Michigan day and everyone is meant to wear Michigan colours: Maize and Blue. This school has a lot of pride and a lot of branding, UCT could learn a thing or two about school pride from this crowd.
