Today’s entry (and the last in the queue—send yours in) comes from Peter Hoffman. His caption is indented:
Here’s a photo of me from Norway just around 2 years ago, driving up with friends to their mountain cabin. Since about 43 years ago I’ve made nordic ski racing a big part of my activities, sometimes over there as well. The statue is of Ole Einar Bjoernedalen, easily looked up as the best ever male biathlete.
That activity gets me out of my chair, where I try to do or understand mathematics and now largely (not doing!) theoretical physics. Ten years ago, I retired at 69 from teaching the former, at UWaterloo.
My wife and I have recently visited Iceland often, since that Eyjafjalla volcano trapped us in Dublin (pretty good place for that!) in 2010. Later we went in a Hurtigruten (same ship line as Jerry’s Antarctic trip) up to Spitzbergen, not much more than 1,000 km from the North Pole.
Anyway, no travel, but no end of stuff to do during the bad situation at present, especially on the bike as well as reading.
