Joint Meetings 2009 — Day 4
Sorry for not posting yesterday, but I was sort of run-down. I”m taking today as a break before I join Knots in Washington tomorrow, already in progress. Anyhow, the last day of the Joint Meetings is always slow, and there’s nothing much for me to talk about here. Instead, I’ll put up some pictures.
I had lunch at Petits Plats during the conference. First there was the Wild Mushroom Ravioli:

Back at the Meetings, Helamon Ferguson was there as usual. He had these things hanging from the ceiling:
Then down on the tables were a bunch of his greatest hits:

And a picture of him using it:
Finally, on my way to Adams Morgan (avoiding the conference press at the Woodley Park restaurants) I passed this restaurant, which I thought John Baez would love:
Definitely click this last one to embiggen, and see all the neat patters in the metalwork.
