For Shamal's eyes only
Let me also take the opportunity to note the wonderful panoramic landscape from my window, with autumnal hues varying beautifully in reds, yellows, greens and browns. Above the canopy our local buzzard was again gliding, banking and swerving, tilting his wings to maximise lift from the updraft Thereupon he glided over toward the crane near Mozartturm.
Let Shamal recall this little vignette once he has departed this other Eden, demi-paradise, this Germany, to take up his position as an Oxonian ( a [matriculated] member of the University of Oxford and, by virtue of this, a scholar (Shamal's pointer to OED, appropriately)). The pedantic attention to detail displayed by this imminent denizen of those halls of learning augers well for his speedy rise through the ranks of Academia.
