Editing a manuscript (1)

Today I will be leaving for Brussels. Another assignment of the EU (see the list), working in the grant factory. Another week living in a hotel. My favourite hotel, Hotel du Congres, was booked up, so I had to look for another one. It is further away from the grant factory than the Hotel du Congres, but it is at the end of the metro line and will be only 15 minutes by metro, so the site says.

Usually the evenings are no fun, unless you know other people from the crew. Then you will go for some good food and talks. But otherwise you can have a pizza and watch television. I have planned to get a major assignment done: the editing of a manuscript. Every night two chapters and by the end of the week it will all be done. I will start tonight editing in the train to Brussels.

I hope to be able to report on the chapters during the Brussels days. I am not sure whether I have access to a wifi in the hotel.
