I’ve been a bit quiet the last few days and the reason for that is that I travelled across the Atlantic for an extended work visit. For the next month I’ll be working at UT Austin, where there is an excellent instrumentation group. I’ll be giving a talk on some of my work in a couple of weeks’ time.
First impressions of Austin are pretty nice. The weather at the moment is like that perfect summer’s day that all Northern Europeans dream about, that only comes along maybe one day of the year, if we’re lucky. Only it’s like that every single day here at this time of year. Nice! The colour of choice here is burnt orange, and LOTS of it. And undergraduates look just as young here as back in Europe.
