Back, nothing major changed, huh? November 24, 2008

Posted by fetzthechemist in Uncategorized.

After a period of being away on trips, on to LA and one to Abu Dhabi – which are not that different, I am back. Two weeks away and the world pretty much sits the same. Funny how day-to-day exposure to it all makes everything seem frenetic and chaotic, but nothing really changes.

Runny scrabbled eggs and ersatz bacon made from beef – so it tasted like jerky – or sausages that were really chicken dogs. Breakfast was pretty poor except for the pastries. Excellent, almost like in France, plus they had min-doughnuts of the old fashioned variety.

But the trip was good, teaching lab problem solving. If I do that again, I’ll totally revamp the course. It must have been put together by an academician, all theory and background. No practical work at all. I will make most of it workshops and discussions, with brief descriptions of techniques and even more about how they can be screwed up.
