My first presentation in my new lab, and Settlers of Catan


Yesterday I did my first presentation in the lab I now belong to, and this was the first time I met any of the people in this group. I gave a short overview what I have done in my life so far (mostly about my work). After the seminar was over (there were other presentations too), I was invited to stay around and play board games. We played one game of Settlers of Catan, but then I had to leave to catch the last subway train home (I usually go by bicycle but it was raining heavily and I had to lug around my computer which does not do well with rain, so I had come by subway). They have lots and lots of board games, and they seem to be very nice people.

    1. Labbet verkar styras av en sträng men rolig och trevlig professor, så de får nog en del gjort ändå. Man får ju också tänka på att i Japan tycker professorer att man ska tillbringa minst 16 timmar per dag (7 dagar i veckan) i själva labbet. Utöver det bör man väl även gå till lektioner i andra klassrum. Så det finns väl en del timmar till brädspel också :-)
