Math in high places
Today we start the journey that begins our 3 week adventure in Spain! It will be a wonderful break from the intensity of work in the last few months, but I think we'll have limited internet, so probably not much viewing, commenting, or posting here. So don't post anything interesting or I might miss it :-).
This is from the traditional Wednesday afternoon hike at Dagstuhl. Every Wednesday after lunch the talks are suspended and those who are interested take a break and go hiking in the German countryside. These are a great chance to stretch your legs, and also get to know (or catch up with) some of the participants, although I assure you that plenty of geeky discussion occurs as well.
I've only ever done this in the winter, so I'm used to cool/cold, wet (and sometimes snowy) conditions. Doing it on a sunny, warm day in mid-May was quite the treat, and we did a totally different route than I'm used to.
