Reporting from Holland

I haven't been able to sit peacefully in the past 4-5 days. Those paintings from the last entry were the beginning of a busy schedule.

The onam celebration on the next day; The study tour (I was the tutor) to Nürmberg on Sunday and then flying to Amsterdam on Sunday evening -- All these kept me busy.

Even after coming here I happen to be busy (at home: talking with my friend) and then to the conference/workshop place.

The talks are good. Most of them, I follow well during the first half, then the things get a little too complicated to understand. But I did really enjoy a few talks. There were a few boring talks too! :)

I haven't got a chance to go around the city, yet!. My host happens to be a not-out-going person. Well, I knew that earlier. But after reaching here, I even realized that he is lately traveling in straighline in life - a one-dimensional life. (if he reads this entry, he might argue back - trust me guys, I am so right here)

So, all the touring has to be done alone. Well, after the conf. tomorrow. :)

By the way, something which happened yesterday reminded me of IIT mess(canteen). Sometimes when we went for dinner, we would be around a table, students from Kerala, TamilNadu, Karnataka, Orissa, Maharashtra, W.Bengal, MP, Bihar and so on.

Yesterday when we (I and some other Ph.D students) went for dinner, we were - from India, Italy, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Russia, USA and France - all around the same table. Great... isn't it?

All are very nice people and needless to say - very smart too! :) [Loved their company]

I have to leave now. Or else, I will be late for the afternoon session.

Signing off, Sands.

PS1: Forgot to bring my camera! :(

PS2: In a hurry - so, for just this entry, you may have the liberty of reading between the lines, if you find me not so clear in expressing, provided you won't read any bad things. ;)
