Well, I've finally been reunited with my luggage. In there was a CD of photos that the organizer provided at the end of the conference. I thought that was a really cool gesture. I also thought I'd show that Russia wasn't all fun in games by highlighting pictures of me attending the conference. Little did I know I was this conference's Zelig.
I was sitting in the upper right of the conference Monday morning, as you can see from the closeup.
The rest of the pictures show me at the rump session studiously taking notes. (Please ignore the empty beer glasses.)
