Pictures from Ravenna I cannot upload my own pictures to the web yet, but the official site of the conference has put up some of the photos. Go have a look, and if you knew some of these people, you would have been laughing as hard as I am laughing now! (under "smile, they are looking at you" section, the third picture from the top on the right, the serious looking man with the beard is my professor, Martin Schwartz).

Ravenna, the Mosaic Capital! Cannot write Persian, obviously, and do not even know where the apostrophe is in the Italian keyboard, that is why I have to write like Marlow! Ravenna is nice, and really is the capital of mosaic, plus the place where Dante died, and where Theodoric and his lombards set-up as their short lived, but long influenced capital. Obviously during the past two days, what I have seen has been manily the inside of the institute for the preservation of art. The conference is not half as exciting or informative than I thought. I have gotten to know some rather interesting personalities though! All in all, seems to be going okay. My presentation is tomorrow morning, wish me luck. Till later and a good detailed story of this trip, keep safe! P.S.: I found a room rather easily, so do not worry!
