The conference in memory of Chard Engelbracht is happening tomorrow.
Thoday is T-0. I visited Steward observatory and chatted to people during beer+pizza at the infamous 1702 restaurant. Now I finally know what Fish is on about.
Met up with Tim Pickering again. He was one of Chad's friends in grad school. In general the meeting has a bit of "boys back together" feel to it.
Meanwhile Joannah Hinz has been awesome in helping me. For example, she dropped me at El Target for my US shopping! All the while picking up people from the airport and organizing this conference. Oh and I get to stay in her guest bedroom too! Awesome.
