First Day of Classes
Today I had my first in-person class. This class was "Intro to Computer Science", which I discovered is going to be primarily just learning C++. C++ is fairly similar to Python (in fact the interpreter for Python is built in C which is a previous version of C++) so it should be a breeze for me. This website was built in Python. Needless to say, I know my way around the block. Most of my classes meet just once or twice a week, but for extended periods of time. The class I took today, for instance, was more than 4 hours long. I'm now fully moved into the dorm, I have my keys and am almost fully unpacked. I went out to dinner with Yosef this evening (see pictures). I took the bus there and back, but my bus driver drove right past my stop so I had to walk a few kilometers to get back to campus. The picture of the lights is a neat bridge. The picture hardly encapsulates the full magnificence of the architecture. The picture isn't great because I saw took it from on a bus; I'll try and take better pictures when I come across it next. Tomorrow I don't have any classes, I'll be going to Masada as well as the Dead Sea. For those interested in cello details: While I was practicing at the apartment where I was quarantining, someone came and knocked on the door. He was a cellist as well, and he's interested in starting an ensemble or a quartet. We have each other's contact info and we'll be working something out in the near future. Stay tuned for more details and possible videos!
