What a week
What a week. On Friday watched grandson playing cricket. Sailed on Sun and then (just) caught the plane to Harvard. Great working session with Nowak and Rand on Monday and other project meetings in Boston and NY. Flew back overnight Thurs and up to Cambridge: celebrate birthday of Elder Grandson, watched Son playing cricket and dined on Trinity high table with some contemporaries, organised by Andrew Blake. Sat next to the great Béla Bollobás (my most inspiring mathematics teacher) and was also delighted to see Amartya Sen: we keep missing each other in Harvard but hopefully will catch up this side of the atlantic.
