Veronica haunting the halls of the hostel where we stayed. As our group's only Swede, she served as our travel agent and made all our arrangements and reservations for us. She did a superb job.

Norrkoeping has canals running all through it, like Venice only not sinking.

I think they designed the canals for white water rafting.

There was a cool rope/art/activity exhibit on the 3rd floor. Kate gave the rope bridge a try.

Patrick missed this try, but the log cow wasn't going anywhere and he got it a minute later.

The Cromwell, where everyone gathered to watch two football matches happening simultaneously.

I found myself turning my head from one screen to the other, which were situated across the room from each other.

It was a lot like watching a tennis match, actually.

The first talk of the rendering symposium was given by Jan Koenderink, the famous Dutch computer scientist.

We were a crowd in this room, but it was nice because there was no avoiding people even if you were sleepy.

Lunch the first day (as well as the last) was held at the Pappa Grappa restaraunt, which served food of no identifiable nationality.

The company was good, at least.

Seated beside Phil is Veronica's brother, Anders, who had volunteered to help out at the symposium. Xi is on the far right.

This is the only shot I got of Lofstad Castle, inside which no cameras were allowed. They had a lot of old furniture and artwork that I wish I could show you, but I can't.

Dinner afterwards was a crowded affair, but fun. A largish group of us got together to sing the traditional "Philosopher's Drinking Song" by Monty Python. I led the singing, which was not good. People told us afterwards that we were loud, at least.
Captured June 21 2004 8:27:04p
Towards the end of our meal, we had live entertainment -- "The Specular Highlights," who sang (much to our embarrassment) a perfect three-part rendition of "The Philosopher's Drinking Song." I have no pictures from our group's rendition, but I was very glad we went first.

The social event the second night took us to a "dolphinarium," where we saw a water show worthy of (and no doubt inspired by) a broadway musical.

To celebrate the end of the workshop and the European Cup, we held our own "Teapot Cup" following the tradition started in Pisa two years before. The group was split into Nordic players and the rest. I ended up on the Danish team, because I had a Danish for breakfast, so there was Danish blood flowing in my veins.

Patrick had a few outstanding shots on goal, but only two got through on the non-Nordic side.

Francisco was the non-Nordic team's goalie, and did very well until he injured his arm towards the end of the game.
