I'm sorry, dear internet friends, but I'm too tired to add a narrative to these right now. Here's hoping you can invent one. I've put them up because I have yet to do Carcassonne, and I'm going to Copenhagen on Friday, which will result in a whole new set of images to be parsed.
On a totally different note: I can't afford the plane fare - or the time off, frankly - to accompany the bloke to San Francisco for AGU (the American Geophysical Union meeting). It's over a year since I've set foot in my homeland. For some reason I'm finding this very hard to cope with right now.
