Off to a good start UPDATED

Got to the BNF before 9. Coffee not available, turns out, till 10. First book of the day was not the history of the Jews I'd requested, but the Book of Psalms, whose code was one number off.


Slight improvement - the right book was in fact possible to locate, located, and not useless. The café opened. The woman who prepares the coffee employs the cough-directly-onto-hand method of blocking the spread of germs, meaning the afternoon coffee may come from elsewhere, but things seem to be heading in the right direction.

A cough? Just a coughl;
But the coffee was awful!
It shouldn't be lawful.

Well done!

A further update: the Starbucks drip, which unlike the espresso in the BNF seems to actually contain caffeine, is unfortunately the way to go. Unfortunately b/c 2.50 euros as vs. 1.10.
