7:13am on Saturday, 8th June, 2019:



Today was graduation day for the students at Uppsala University's Gotland campus.

I didn't know that this involved wearing sailor hats and riding in a convoy of cattle trucks pulled by tractors, but apparently is does.

Different countries, different cultures.

Meanwhile, at Essex University today, the end of the examination period will be marked by mass drunkenness caused by the consumption of vast quantities of cheap alcohol. I believe this is how Swedish students also greet the end of the academic year (leastwise the ones from Stockholm come to Gotland to do it) except the alcohol isn't cheap.

Different countries, same culture.
