School is taking up most of my time - but I'm loving it. Fall is particularly beautiful this year. The whole of September was practically rain free. And I've learned how to use knitting machines, so there'll be a gargantuan knitted wrap around my neck (preferably in a Lanvin blue tone) ASAP. Fit for fight.

Saw a really amazing art exhibition at the Nobel Peace Center today. Photographer Linda Bournane Engelberth has documented asylum seekers in Europe. She focused on the excruciating waiting time that these people have to endure due to the Dublin II convention (meaning that your application can only be processed in the first country you seek asylum). I really felt she manage to capture the insecurity, boredom and fear. There were pictures from Norway, Greece and Rome. Pretty mind blowing. I didn't know that much about the Dublin II convention, but apparently all your identification is being saved when seeking asylum for the first time and people even concider burning off their prints just so they can seek asylum in a second country. Most asylum seekers enter Europe by either Italy or Greece - very few, or close to no one get their asylum application granted.
