I’m still traveling this week, so this will be a short post.
Last year, when I went to Amplitudes I left Europe right after. This felt like a bit of a waste: an expensive, transcontinental flight, and I was only there for a week?
So this year, I resolved to visit a few more places. I was at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen earlier this week.
Now, I’m at Mainz, visiting Johannes Henn.
Oddly enough, I’ve got family connections to both places. My great-grandfather spent some time at the Niels Bohr Institute on his way out of Europe, and I have a relative who works at Mainz. So while the primary purpose of this trip was research, I’ve gotten to learn a little family history in the process.
