no riots today

Today I got a tour of Universidad de Chile with Azun, a history professor at the university. She started teaching there when she was my age, so technically, I could have been a teacher there. Just in case any of her students asked who the gringo was. I had been warned ahead of time that there is a history of people rioting on the campus. I was told (while on the campus) not to worry, most of the riots occur just off the campus.
Nothing happened while I was on the campus, but I left while the students were gathering in a courtyard. They had a loudspeaker and were discussing something. Riots usually start with discussions.

So now I just sit listening to Jason Mraz and am thankful that I am alive.
