Recently I had the pleasure of being in Boston for the "Transiting Planets" IAU Symposium. This was a surpassingly interesting scientific forum, but also a good opportunity to catch up with a few of my friends.

David and Kaspar aboard the USS Constitution.
David risked Teresa's wrath and went to the Union Oyster House without her.
Our globe-trotting pal Jaymie Matthews arrived just in time (as usual!)
David, Kaspar and myself get caught up on some science projects.
I hate to say it, but Boston is full of dead people.
"Just like Columbus..."
Jeroen Bouwman and Giovanna Tinetti put in some heroic measures for their latest paper (submitted after a few all-nighters during the conference).
The conference banquet was at the Barking Crab.
Stephan Kane and I enjoyed our lobster.
Dawn, David and I made a complete mess with the grub.
Fun at the Barking Crab.
One of the conference organizers, Dimitar Sasselov, enjoyed his lobster too.
