posts about myself.
since january 4th, i’m living in calgary now. here a few impressions from inside the place where i’m living this time:
and here a few impressions from a walk i took today. also compare them to these photos i took last may, as i ended in the same park i began with in last may. note that the current temperature got up to +14 degrees celsius right now (3 p.m.), this morning it was a bit less but still positive.
some ducks swimming in parts of the river which are not covered by ice:
finally, the place where i’m staying. very easy to recognize due to euler’s identity scratched into the concrete:
today i tried the golden pass panoramics tour, going from zürich to lucerne to interlaken ost to zweisimmen to montreux. here are some impressions:
today was a sunny, beautiful day, even though pretty hot. it resulted in another trip on the zürisee:
after that, it resulted in a photo featuring me and two soccer players:
simply beautiful, filling me with happiness.
another thing making me happy are two small presents, one being already a few weeks old, the other being new:
thank you, i really like them a lot!
this week, i was attending the ants. that’s not a conference on ant colony optimization and swarm intelligence, but the eighth instance of the algorithmic number theory symphosium, held in banff, canada.
banff is situated in the canadian part of the rocky mountains, whence one has a pretty neat sight:
here are some impressions from the conference center facilities. the first is a shortcut to the dining hall, the second the professional develop center, and the third one a pathway inbetween:
the next two photos show a view from inside the professional develop center, where we were housed, and me together with my poster:
this conference has been really great. i had lots of fun, learned a lot, met a lot of nice folks (again). and some more.
today, i made a small excursion onto the ütliberg. again, it was very foggy, though it wasn’t really raining as last time. this time i took a lot more photos than last time, and also some panoramas. maybe i’m done with sorting out the stuff tomorrow, in which case i’ll upload some. for the moment, here’s a photo of myself:
first, some pictures from the cogwheel train ride up to bellavista:
then, some pictures from our walk from bellavista up to the top of the mountain:
and that’s me on the top of the mountain, one step from the abyss:
a picture of the village mendrisio:
finally, some pictures from my train ride to northern germany on sunday:
