Foz do Iguacu, Brazil for an astronomy meeting
The Circumstellar Dynamics at High Resolution meeting, at the Rafain Palace Hotel in Foz do Iguacu.
The meeting poster.
Butterflies and lots of bamboo, in the Brazilian green and yellow colors.
My friend Lucas Ellerbroek seems to be a real photographer, and took some excellent photos at the bird sanctuary.
On Sunday night, there was a cocktail party on the hotel grounds.
The meeting was on the top floor of the hotel.
Alex and Rivi opened up the meeting on Monday morning. Asif was the first member of our group to give a talk.
A typical street in the city of Foz do Iguacu. Contrast with the bar in our hotel's lobby.
I shared a room with Rich. These were the views out our window.
On Tuesday, we had an outing to the Brazil side of the Iguacu Falls.
I took a movie, while out on the platform in the middle of the falls. Make sure you have the sound up.
And once again, Lucas's photos are amazing.
Stan's talk and Jon's talk were on Wednesday. They were both doing something with their hands. I think it had to do with circumstellar dynamics.
There, we could get incredibly close to the falls. Check out the movie.
There was all sorts of wildlife at the falls.
