Countdown to Korea

This Friday I will fly to Seoul for a scientific conference on type 2 diabetes and since I have been invited to give a talk there I have certainly spent hours preparing for that, but not as much preparation time, as I would have liked, to figure out what to see, eat, and do when I am not at the conference. But since the time difference is 12 hours (or is it 13 hours ahead of here?ūüėĪ) I am sure I will have plenty of sleepless hours to browse the internet for what to do once I am there......I am ridiculously excited about going as I have never been to Asia before and from what I hear October is a perfect time to visit.
But before I can go I had a bunch of stuff at work I wanted to wrap up, which means I have been running around like a headless chicken (sorry can’t help posting a picture of Hei Hei)

trying to get stuff done. But I slowly feel like I might actually have everything ready by Thursday night. Phew. I spent most of Saturday - a beautiful sunny crisp Saturday - in front of the microscope, and that has really helped my mental state. Now I am only stressed out about a potential site wide fire drill this Wednesday, that might screw up half a days worth of experiments and where no one can tell me exactly what time it happens, so I can prepare for it. Sigh. Needless to say, mice and rats are not particularly excited about fire alarms either......
In my last blogpost I kind of abruptly left off with our visit to Leu Gardens in Orlando (the pictures with Hei Hei - remember?)

Sorry. I will stop now. Promise!
But we made it safely back to Michigan. Kind of late. Where we picked up the dog on the way home from the airport because home does not feel like home if bailey is not here to greet you at the door!

On Thursday Christine and I went to Detroit with Kristian, as I had booked a walking tour of cork town as a birthday present for her. It started out being super rainy and grey

But we had a nice tour of the oldest part of Detroit (where I completely forgot to take pictures even though there were many many beautiful, colorful, painted houses).Here’s a picture from the internet. I bet you didn’t think it would be this pretty, right?

And we also squeezed in a visit to Jenny’s farm stand before she left:

They seriously have the best donuts. And we seriously had a lot of fun eating them.......

We didn’t laugh quite as much when we had to take Christine to the airport, but lucky for us we always know that there will be a “next time”!
