But this time was truly special as I got live on the Fairmont hotel, which is literally built as a Scottish castle:
Complete with knight armors
And stone carved squirrels looking like they are either from a horror movie or had a very bad night😳
But my favorite place was by far this one:
Outdoor hot pools are THE BEST! And I also got to see some fantastic views just by going downtown to eat lunch
The scientific side of the conference was OK. There weren’t a lot of ground breaking discoveries in the talks but there is more and more interest in the hormone I currently work with (GDF15) and I am personally quite happy that my career has not yet put me in touch with super aggressive vomiting shrews, who play dead in the cage so they can attack you as soon as you take the lid off.
In addition I got to spend time with a few of my new colleagues as I am soon to start a new job. This is something that has been in the making for a long time and we have kept kind of quiet about it. But more about that will slowly start dripping in here as I move to the East Coast. Next week😱
