University of Madness...

university started today and man it was wierd to be back. quite frankly the only thing that really got to me was the million new faces around on the first day and that kind of swept away the known faces. still i managed to run into quite a few of our pals (i.e. the boyz). the back-to-school news is that this semester i won't be doing my normal modules with my friends (to be more specific with my B.S.c Eco classmates). siven, fano, hansen, rocko and others are all following seperate classes. so it's me, rishi and ben sticking it out together through the trauma of having to attend University of Mauritius classes. we do have ONE common module though. so the entire focus of the week falls to tuesday. this year we have most of our lectures scheduled in the new engineering tower that is at the outskirts of the univeristy campus. that means that we get new and bigger classroom (now that our class has been reduced to like 15 students) with a fabulous view of Cort de Guard (did i spell it right? if not then just know that it is the flat mountain near QB) and the sugarcane fields. quite unwanted, since we all were pretty much happy with our lecture theaters in the old academic complex that had bigger windows with the cafe in sight.
also, the new government has finally prooven that they are going to fulfill all the pre-election promises. they have begun implementing on the free transport for students and senior citizens plan. so from the 1st of Sept all University of Mauritius students (and other students as well throughout mauritius) need not pay any money to get to the uni (or their school) and back home. hurray. though one thing does nag me. how on earth is the government going to generate and afford the Rs 600 Million per year cost of this "free transport" without any functional economic sector ? any ideas? i guess that these guys in mauritius are going to need all the ideas that we can give them.
so coming back to today, i guess that the only major highlight that is worth mentioning is that i got to eat the dholl puri's from the guy who comes out near James's shop. he is no doubt my favourite dholl puri guy in all of mauritius. and i guess that it does help that i am a regular customer. so of course i get preferential treatment (i.e. extra stuffing in my dholl puris...mmm).

all right then, i have to get going. have a bit of reading that needs to be done for the classes tomorrow. gotta be ready. i am in the third year now.
i will try and update my blog regularly. just keep in touch folks. it is a real pleasure reading all your comments.

ps: gordon are you dead? i tried calling you on saturday. just know that i have not dissappeared like some people tend to do. i am very much here. the last week i spent staying at home getting used to being home and reading. see ya around bru.

and yeah mitty, have fun in australia...give andy a big slap on the back from me. get wasted in the land down under and make sweet love to the kangaroos and koalas.
;D (don't forget the pictures).

Hey boy,

Who's your Daddy? Yeah, fucking suffer you little shit. Sorry man, my phone was fucked this weekend. Someone fucked with it and changed my service operator settings. You are not the only one who complained. Give me a shout sometime and let's go to Buddah. Anne will be here on the 27th, so we have to go out and get sooo fucking wasted like never before. What this shit you wrote on Jess's blog about decent shit to read. You know my blog is the best by far. Great pic's, great stories and creative writing. You know SA rules the world by far, they just need to acknowledge it. Anyway, to be COOL, stay in SCHOOL. That's where you need to be anyway, petit plocke.

Keep Well my boy and give me a shout sometime, Allez.
