conference time

I've taken a short side-trip to attend a conference right before my field season begins.  Insane, yes.  That is how the past few months have been, so why stop now?

Today I spent a lot of my time wishing that the older, very accomplished, very well-respected scholars giving talks here would please, please, please learn how to use Powerpoint.

Also, I have been traveling via two different countries whose languages I have absolutely no experience with, not even a little bit in high school.  It's been a really long time since I've traveled somewhere without at least some small familiarity with the language and/or alphabet, so this has been kinda fun.  It seems like the world is filled with jibberish.
