...And so, I'm headed to Orlando, Florida...for another 7 days.
The life of a graduate student requires that we sometimes go off to various places in the world (within the USA on my budget!) to go to conferences, and I'm off to attend one of my favorite ones: The Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology. It's a meeting that brings together scientists from all branches of biology to help them integrate their research with that of others. I think that this is one of the most important things that we as scientists can do, so I'm happy to support it. And I'm happy to leave behind all the rain and darkness that my home state is currently being bombarded with. But I can tell you one thing, I'm not excited to go and travel and not have Internet access for another week! I miss you all!
But I'll be back...with lots of photos of the places I get to eat...gulp...as long as I can muster up the courage to whip out my camera and explain to my fellow scientists why I simply must take photographs of everything I eat... more likey I might end up with pictures of the outside facades of the places I eat, but I promise to try! I'm still crossing my fingers that I'll get lucky and have Internet access in my room, but being that I am a lowly grad student, this may not be the case.
So, keep cooking, my friends, so that I have many new recipes to try when I am finally able to be home! Have a wonderful first week of 2006, and I'll talk to you all when I return!
PS. If anyone can recommend a restaurant while I'm there - please do so! Hopefully I'll be able to at least check my email at some point!
