College Station, TX, isn’t my first choice of places to visit, but I was invited out by an old grad school chum to give a talk and meet folks. Long story short, it was really fun! The department there (actually, a sub-department as the astronomers are a semi-autonomous branch of the very large physics department) is quite new and has some real up-and-coming talent. Everyone came to my lunch-time talk and then I spent the afternoon talking to people and getting toured about. It was really nice.
Anyway, it’s not much of an adventure as these things go, but a definite change of scenery from my usual activities.
