My muse is still away, so after spending the morning with Aly, I’m meeting Amit.

No swordplay today, just a movie about swordplay. We’re seeing Mongol, which is an Oscar-nominated film about Genghis Khan. It’s really good, and the landscapes are striking.

You can make up your own caption for this one if you’d like.
