The students are back
The yearly little trucks , station cars with chairs and seats sticking out of the back side, ...are back in Leuven. They are parked on the sidewalks and parents are unloading nervously lamps and chairs and boxes together with a lot of advice.
Yep, the academic schoolyear has started again. The university and colleges have started again and the parking spaces in the neighbourhood have gone down again. Aren't studens supposed to train to Leuven anymore? Tsssss. When I was a student , we all took the train. (haha, does that make me sound old :D).
Yesterday the professors paraded in their toga's again through the streets for the official traditional opening parade.
