Spoke to ijon today after failing to get hold of him for a while (remember to specify "tent no. 3" when you ask for him on the phone). He's feeling fine, although he still finds it hard to arrange a quiet place for himself to concentrate on his studies. He hopes that this will become easier once he's transferred to prison no. 6, but a decision on that matter is still to be made. Another decision that is still awaited is whether he'll be given a leave on Friday morning to attend a university exam. His hopes are high that both these requests will be granted, since he is receiving special attention from the prison staff, who are appreciative of his special situation as a conscientious prisoner.
