Day 137 — Christmas in class
17-December-1971 (Fri.)


A really good day. In electronic music, I played my letter. Kaufman was at least laughing.

The rest of the day was really good. In acoustics, engineer Gotwald was explaining to us about the oscilloscope. We started fooling around, drinking wine, and trying to get weird pictures on the oscilloscope. We really went wild when we got a good Christmas tree design, so we turned the oscilloscope on its side. It was a lot of fun (a little education) and at least it showed that we were all human.

Leaving for Innsbruck tonight. Can’t wait. I hope its good.


Christmas in class. Today, before the school break for the Christmas holidays, we have a bit of fun. Some wine drinking. I play my “Letter Home” for the class. They politely laugh. Then we create Christmas tree patterns on the oscilloscope.

An easy day.

Then tonight, it’s off to Innsbruck for my first ski trip in Austria.
