I'm in it, it is warm, and as usual I'm sleeping poorly in my hotel room as the bed is too springy and the pillows too soft. But as I say, it is warm, and unlike some of my colleagues from British Columbia, the midwestern USA and other points in that general direction, I actually got here more or less on time.
One acquaintance, who lives in Iowa, arrived here in the middle of the day on Friday. Having left home on Wednesday. Seems there was a bit of snow.
However, all is mainly well, I am learning lots about complicated and newfangled DNA sequencing technologies, and am slated to return home tomorrow, nearly-full disposable film camera in hand, so we'll see whether that yields any halfway decent pictures. I have high hopes for the shots of the fireworks on Thursday night, but realistically they'll probably be all out of focus and useless.
Not much else to report... might go for a nap now. Later, all.
