I'm being sent for three days in Paris next week. Most of it will be spent touring a laboratory and meeting with the potential collaborators who run it. Still it will be nice to see Paris.
A couple of weeks later I may be going for a meeting in Cologne, to talk with another potential collaborator. Again, it will mostly be work, but it will be nice to see Cologne.
Iris isn't coming with me on either of these business trips, but she may well get a baguette and some cologne out of it.
Hard to know what she will get this weekend on our trip to Hamburg, given that we are vegetarians.
