Sean's ECS travelog

Postby SCMurphy » Tue Nov 21, 2006 8:39 am

The travelog of my trip to the ECS meeting is written and has been checked by Jan so if I spend the next few nights web-optimizing my pictures it could be posted on the GWAPA site on Saturday. A link will be posted when it is up.

For everyone interested in joining the NACS here is a little homework for you.

OK, the pictures are ready for the web, the text is written, our web guy is setting up a gallery style image wrangler, the last thing to do is write up the captions for the 130 odd pictures. That'll go quicker than the resizing. :roll:
Soon, very soon.

The fish. ;)

I must have glossed over any unidentified plant - which pic? :)
Best wishes,

Kai, when are we going to see the write up of your talk?

Sean;

Great read. Brought back many memories from our honeymoon. Some of your linquistic challenges reminded me of when we went to Kanton Schwyz to see the Abby of Einsiedeln and the Federal Charter. There's a subtle phonoetic difference between Schwyz and Schweiz that the average American doesn't pick up. Having gotten mis-directed several times, each time we stopped for directions to Schwyz, everyone was telling us "You're already there" (Schweiz). Funny now, but quiet frustrating at the time.

Looking forward to hearing meeting details.

Cheers.
Jim

What's fun is to stand around and ask someone if they live in Schweiz, instead of saying Switzerland, they'll start to answer then think about how you asked and start to answer again, maybe in German. *hint* Only do this with friends.

Marlene and I often got funny looks from passers-by when we would be speaking to a local in stumbling German and they would reply in better English. Of course we each wanted the practice, but when you're speaking halting german with a shop owner who's replying in english and another local stops in the shop, at first they look at us like we've all lost our minds.

Schwyzerdütsch was totally beyond me.

Cheers.

Piet's present to Claus? That's a scurrilis.

Kai, when are we going to see the write up of your talk?

Nah, that's just work in progress - actually hardly started... ;)

I'm preparing a new thread on leafmould/soil for the APC forum and the few take home messages will go in there, too. Just give me 1-2 weeks...
Best wishes,
Kai

Well I hope you post it here too.
