I was given the opportunity to spend a week in
Corfu, Greece, for a meeting with our European collaborators. I
gave a 30 minute presentation about the Penner group research and,
for that, I got a wonderful hotel room on the beach. The researchers
were from all around Europe, and getting to know them was interesting.
It was also nice that they were all physicists and had no idea what
I was talking about, because some of them were extremely intimidating.
