The Morning After

The conference attendees heading into the sunset on a Mississippi steam boat (well, a fake one obvously, it is Hamburg after all).

The Big Bang at Lepton-Photon did happen after all… Although not in the form of truly spectacular results, but in the form of the conference dinner. For most conferences, the dinner is an important event: For the attendees, it is a perfect opportunity to hang out together, chat about projects, or just to have fun. And for the organizers, the dinner is a way of adding a little extra note to the conference… And it was really well done this time!

We headed out to a former warehouse in the Hamburg harbor by ship, a fake Mississippi steam boat (well, the wheel at the back actually did work, and was the thing driving the boat), and then got a fantastic dinner. There was no shortage of wine either, which, at least at my table, meant a really fun evening.

And: We also managed to take a QD bloggers group picture: Ingrid, Paul and myself!

Paul, Ingrid and yours truly, after a healthy dose of wine...

Getting up early in the morning (the session starts at 8:30, which is really brutal), was painful, but I dragged myself out of bed for the first talk on top physics… Another topic I like, also because of the lectures I’m giving. And the talks was really worth it. And of course life always looks better after a shower and coffee.
