View from my hotel room last night / this morning:
on a postcard in the comments, please!
By the way, if a colleague tells you that a PI is cursed when it comes to travel, do NOT book yourself onto the same flight as him. Yes, he’s famous for missing connecting flights on two separate work trips, even when everyone else travelling with him managed to make it; yes, the colleague who once switched seats with him on a third trip was the person randomly selected to get booted off an over-booked plane; yes, if your meeting finishes early and you manage to switch to a flight that leaves two and a half hours earlier than the one you were supposed to be on, there will be a massive thunderstorm and then a technical malfunction with the plane door and you will endure a flight sitting in front of a screaming toddler who constantly kicks the back of your seat and you will only get home 20 minutes earlier than originally scheduled. Oh, and your other colleague will kick your ass at Monopoly on your own iPhone, even though it’s the first time she’s played since she was eight.
Oh well, it was a very interesting meeting, and great to meet some of the main collaborators for “my” project’s next five years. Did I mention that my new job is awesome?
