I'm going to enjoy this book...

Just started reading The Iron Hand of Mars, the fourth of the Falco novels by Lindsey Davis. I love whodunnits, especially funny ones. I have a feeling this'll be one of the best ever. Falco's mission? Go to the lower Rhenus. Find out what happened to Munius Lupercus. Make Veleda stop telling the Bructeri that killing Romans is good. Figure out where Civilis is, and what he's up to, and stop him in case he's plotting.
Should be a piece of cake, lol.

Which reminds me - *I* still have to figure out what happened to Lupercus. Killed on the way to Veleda is a bit too boring, if you ask me.

Actually, I need to start packing. Going to the Netherlands on Monday! Still haven't got a room. They sent my uni registration papers back 'cause stuff was missing (proof that I have a registered address in the Netherlands - kinda difficult to send that when you don't live there and you're on a mile long waiting list to get a room because the uni doesn't give a damn about the cares of foreign students). Meh.

Well, that's one mission he didn't really succeed in. ;)

Hope everything goes well in Amsterdam. I've not found them to be very helpful people, in fact, the staff in the station is among the most unfriendly I've ever come across, except that one black guy who did help me.
