Harvard


I'm visiting Harvard for a week to meet with some folks and learn some new programs, like r8s and BEAST. Apart from the fact that this little trip is facilitating the production of a huge list of things I'll have to do upon returning home, and the little sidenote that these analyses are being conducted on a dataset that isn't actually part of my dissertation, I'm really enjoying the time I'm spending here. The lab that is hosting me is really top notch, full of great and interesting post docs that have helped me immensely.

I've also developed a nice little routine for myself. I'm staying at a bed and breakfast that, although a bit more hotel-like than some I've encountered, still has some nice perks. My personal favorite is the coffee, tea and cookie availablity from 12-10 pm. I have definitely been well-fed while in Boston.

The downside, however, is the my room. More specifically, the size of the room, which could give a postage stamp competition for most compact. The two accompanying pics document about everything offered in this room.
It's kind of a throwback to college, with the twin bed and shared bathroom (out in the hallway, I'm not even going to pretend it's even remotely related to the room). However, my dorm room did have a TV. I guess it's better this way, though, especially for a work trip.
