In Cap and Gown

Except for L’s baptism, I also went to Europe for my graduation at City University in London. Graduating from university in Sweden isn’t what it is in for example the U.S. and a highly informal survey among my friends showed that only one of my friends in Sweden actually attended the graduation ceremony at the end of her studies. But with E and J in London, I had a good reason to go there and I thought it could be a fun to have worn the cap and gown now that I had the chance. And in the end, it was a really nice experience, also to see what a diverse school City University is and how it attracts students from all over the world. As I attended the ceremony, I realized that City University’s motto is To Serve Mankind, and I don’t think there is any school with a more perfect motto for me!

Research and Reports Trump Blogging

I know, I am not a very responsible blogger and I’m afraid it won’t get any better for a while. During the entire month of September, I traveled around Europe for work, a wedding, and a quick visit to Stockholm, and even though that should have given ample of material for blog posts, I’ve been buried in work since I got back from the road trip in mid August. Apart from the two projects that I worked on while in Europe in September, I am finalizing the two reports from my Central Asia trip in May/June, and my Food Policy MSc dissertation is due by end October. So blogging has unfortunately been down prioritized and will continue to be so for the next three weeks. I hope to have more time and inspiration from November to write all about my research on nutrition transition. Or about my travels perhaps? Until then, enjoy October – autumn’s beautiful month here in Washington DC!
