Here is the group I was traveling with. Left to right: Timo, Luis-Paolo, Erik, Alan, & Mashhuda.
This was taken early in the morning on the first day of the symposium, and it was probably pushing 80 degrees out and 90% humidity.
Registration the following morning.
Nora (left) coordinated everything, and did a fantastic job.
Dinner with Dominique, Helge, Celine, Mashhuda, and Franco.
The next evening, we were treated to a guided tour of the old part of Nicosia.
Some of the old houses were very nice, but a bit delapidated. Newer homes looked delapidated, too.
A church, I'm guessing. (I sure wasn't listening.)
Helge wasn't fond of the heat.
This was a restored something-or-other and won some award. I heard that much.
This minaret tower was tacked onto a Greek Catholic church, and blared prayers at us for about 10 minutes at sunset.
This was a challenging HDR to take, and I lost my group taking it. Luckily, I guessed correctly which street they went and caught up with them where we had our dinner.
Our table was luckily chosen to hit the buffet line first.
The fortunate ones.
The less fortunate ones.
Alan was organizing the usual rendition of Monty Python's "Philosopher's Drinking Song." I think he was looking for someone who knew the words, and eventually found Szimon, and copied them onto a napkin. Mashhuda then copied them to something more legible.
The lucky table also got treated to a special cake, baked for someone who had a birthday but hadn't made it. Helge won with the closest date (June 23rd if I remember right).
At the close of the symposium, Alan awarded the organizers with signed football jersies. Here is Yorgios getting his.
And Danny getting his (sorry about the focus).
