First day in the new space

Angelo, Nic Geeraert, and I all arrived in KIBLA yesterday. They drove from Belgium; I took a train from Vienna.

Today was our first day, and things moved very quickly. We turned a series of platforms into work tables and laid out all our equipment (Nic brought what seems like an unending number of tools, including a drill and a voltimeter (yes!)), computer parts (many brought by Angelo from the St-Niklaas workshop), and a few plant-related stuff, including the Belgian-American-Filipino algae mix. Nic suspended a series of metal rods above the main workshop space; the rods ― as well as part of the work tables ― extend into the adjacent exhibition space, bridging the two. It's looking really good.
