So, as you might expect, I have a mountain of email and regular mail and reading and phone messages to catch up on. It's always a bit of a rude awakening to come back to emails from people wondering why I've been ignoring them for three weeks, despite my having told them that I'm gone. I also need to catch up on astronomy news, as I don't know what (if anything) has happened in the past few weeks.
Some of my colleagues will also be coming home today from a major conference in Spain that I wanted to go to, but I wanted to go observing even more. So, I'll have to pick their brains and see what they learned. And, should any of it be exciting, I'll be sure to let you know!
