Did you offer them advice, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Not me, Ray - I just taught there when it was finished smile A couple of trips a year.
An endless perspective Tom!
Tom Wilson: They should have had a mirror at the end for a real endless effect!

No doubt it is a smart thing these days
Tom Wilson: Now beginning to show its age, Chris ;-)
...with that lovely vanishing-point perspective!
Tom Wilson: Glad you like it, Ginnie.
I hope they got the students to design and build it Tom.
Tom Wilson: I don't think so, Chad - former students probably since the Faculty is the biggest in Portugal and reckoned to be the best.

Engineering? They should let the students design and build the place. Great shot.
Tom Wilson: As I said to Chad, they were probably former students who designed it smile
Have they finished it yet?
Tom Wilson: Oh, indeed - in fact I think is now looking a trifle shabby, as predominantly concrete buildings tend to.

Good to see this university has some proper skills to teach.. none of the media studies nonsense. We need more engineers, not more luvvies.
Tom Wilson: You can say that again, Alan. One of the things that surprised me on my teaching visits to this Faculty was the number of women students - I guess it must have been something like 30% and one of my friends there is a woman chemical engineer and another has a daughter who is an engineer - there seems to be much less sexual stereotyping in Portugal than in the UK

You are jumping from one place to the other, you globetrotter!
