Today’s the last day of the Ecology and Evolution meetings. Here’s breakfast at the conference. First, sunrise (from my window):
Breakfast is “all you care to eat”, and it’s good. I eschew the “cooked British breakfast”, which includes baked beans (something that always amazes Americans) in favor of waffles or pancakes with homemade blueberry topping, perhaps a morsel of ham, and a bowl of fruit.
Last night was dinner with fellow speakers at the Balkan Restaurant, a Greek place on Banff Avenue. It’s gotten good reviews, but I found it adequate and not outstanding. The company, however, was good. And a few doors down is the awesome Welch’s Candy Store, into which I made a preliminary foray.
Look at all that candy! Today I’ll return with some loonies, and am contemplating purchase of horehound drops, which I haven’t seen since I was a kid, a stick of Brighton Rock, and perhaps a few chocolate bars for the road.
