It was great to meet old friends (Erik, Edwin, Katrin) who have turned out to be hugely cool scientists and still remained the same wonderful people they’ve always been. But it was mind stoppingly amazing to just run around the conference and go to any lecture or poster I wanted and just talk to likeminded smart people. It was like a theme park for nerds!
Oh and the Leidseplein after a football match.. very intriguing
It’s a good thing that sleep deprivation blocks fear-conditioning (or so they told me) 🙂
