Cold Spring Harbor

The surroundings here are tremendous. The Cold Spring Harbor Labs are situated on a hillside overlooking the bay. Huge trees are growing here, the cabins for accommodation of visitors are virtually in the forest. Squirrels run around the grounds, not at all afraid of the scientists walking about. I almost stepped on a rabbit crossing my path. He stopped to nibble at a tulip right in front of me, then walked off in no hurry.

New York - Part I

Safely arrived in Cold Spring Harbor. I enjoyed the flight, watched Casino Royale, watched the ice crystals forming on the window, watched Step Up, listened to laid back tango, and then I arrived at JFK airport. The shared cab I had booked beforehand came to pick me up at the terminal, and I had my evening meal at Cold Spring Harbor Labs. Most of the evening I spent talking with Celine about dancing (she is into tango) and dance shoes... and a little bit of science.
