To Edinburgh and Back

So here I am at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh waiting for a taxi to the airport. It was just a flying visit from Dublin to do a PhD Examination (for which I had to get up at 5am to catch the plane).

The viva lasted about three and a half hours but went very well and the candidate has only some minor corrections to make. I did, however, miss lunch so now I’m going to have to find something decent to eat in the airport. I may also have a drink!

The gate for my flight back to Dublin is 1K, which is pretty cold.

Update: somewhat to my surprise I got back to Dublin in time to catch the last hopper bus back to Maynooth. Which was nice.

  2. I’ll bet the candidate is very glad.

  3. I’ve never been to Edinburgh, but I’ve always imagined it looking just exactly like that. šŸ™‚
