Hundreds of people are gathered outside the college. They look to the entrance stairs attentively.
What's going on? student protests? announcements, speeches?
Is it about global warming? Iraq? Darfur?

Of course not. It's a fire alarm.

If it weren't for fire alarms, i'd never see 99% of the residents of my building. You really have to love the neighbourly feelings in cities.

I'll be in the Arab ME in the summer for about a week, do you have any plans of being there?

Will be in Jerusalem 30/5 - 5/6. Very brief visit for a friends' wedding, otherwise no plans; I think to complete the thesis this summer I have to stay away from the region.
