It’s 7:38 and sadly my fears about the rooms here in the Queen’s college Annex have been realised. I’ve had virtually no sleep at all because of the noise. The conference organisers should never have put people in here – only those who are heavy sleepers could have any chance of repose. But it’s like everything else — an air of negligence pervades everything.
I may go home later today. If I can’t sleep, I’m hardly going to be able to enjoy the conference very much.
