Buffalo soldier

The conference went well, as did my presentation (though as usual, I had the usual stomach pain afterwards reminiscent of a punch to the gut. Eh, nerves). It is possible we have picked up new experimentalist collaborators in Vancouver at a radioactive beam facility, which is very exciting. I learnt quite al lot about nuclear as well as particle physics during the talks, so overall it was a great success.

The afternoons were free for whatever activities, so yesterday I hiked up to the top of Tunnel Mountain; one day I will learn and buy snow shoes; and today I met up with a familiar face in the town of Banff who has a conference in Lake Louise 60km away (see gallery). Highlights were the consumption of cold-cut bison (like pork or fatty beef) and buffalo (smoked so tasting of salami).

Photos are cool, some quite picturesque locations you've got there!

Not to disparage the guy, but is his name really Peiqing Wang? And is it pronounced 'Peeking'? You can see my intrigue....

I think it was more like Pei-ching.
