I’m here for my annual visit to the University’s excellent language course and also my annual disaster travelling to and from the city.  I thought nothing could top last year’s journey from home but I was wrong.  The chaos at St Pancras meant that I had to completely reroute my journey through Paris.  I had a first-class Interrail pass which meant I could have travelled on most trains, but because I couldn’t have a reservation on a specific train that would have allowed me to arrive at midnight rather than the original 9 pm, I had to ensure a journey that got me to Jena at 10 am with six changes.   Good old Eurostar will be getting a bit of a stern letter about their part in this chaos.

Anyway, to matters in hand.  I am suitably refreshed and ready to deal with today’s task which I think is set by the Original Mysteron.  A pleasant solve.
