Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

The reason behind this latest episode of gadding about the planet was that I was attending the 8th International Conference of Statistics Education in Ljubljana in Slovenia. The fact that I’d had another maths education conference in Western Australia beforehand meant that I had a few days’ hiatus which permitted the travelling through southern Austria. This gives some justification for the previous few blog entries having something of a holiday feel to them. Unfortunately the hiatus wasn’t long enough, and I can’t stay after the conference is over because I am supposed to be teaching about 11 hours after my plane lands at 1:30am (I won’t be expecting much from that lecture … so I hope the students aren’t!).

In a rather convoluted way all of this explains why it is that the 12th of the month, while falling on a working Monday, sees me somewhere other than my messy office or my messy house. Instead I had conference sessions during the day (while suffering a miserable cold that started rearing its ugly head just as I was leaving Australia), and then in the early evening we finished up in part of historic Ljubljana down by the river beneath the castle for dinner in one of the outdoor restaurants. It has been very warm across Europe, which, while making the cold feel even more horrible, has at least made it very nice to eat out.

Anyway, the 12 of 12 photos are here, with extra explanations as usual.
