I am going to a meeting in this city for a few days. I don't expect to have access to internet, so I will have to keep any good stories to myself until I return on Thursday. Chances are pretty good that something weird will happen. I expect there will be grumpy old men, excellent science, vodka, the longest speaches, hopeless attempts at practicing the local language, laughing, good friends, old enemies and some sadness since GeniousForeignColleague who is the personification of this country and this group of people to me will be missing due to chemotherapy treatment.
See you soon.
