I was in Lincoln yesterday and today, doing some external examining. As usual, it went well — their systems are all organised splendidly, and everything is available. It helps that they have fewer modules than we have, so there isn't the same administrative load; then again, they have fewer administrators. There were no problem modules, and the examination board ended an hour early.

It was my final year of external examining there, because the rule is you can't be an external examiner at an institution for more than four years; this was my fourth year. In all my visits, I only ever got to see the university. I never had time to visit the historic centre of Lincoln and look around, even though it's only a short walk away up a hill.

I hope to visit the city again in the future, but this time as a tourist.
