Offshore Ensenada

This past week I attended the 2009 WISE meeting in Ensenada, Mexico on the northwest shore of Baja California. It was a good meeting with a lot of good old friends. We even had a rough boat ride out to sea on Tuesday afternoon. The waves were of 1.5 m or more, many onboard battled seasickness, thanks to Dramamin I was just fine. Here are some of the scenes I saw:

Overall no one got sick from the swine flu, we did not see or heard any local sick people either. But WHO decided to raise the alert level to 4 or 5 and Mexico government talked about closing the border, the meeting was duly or unduly canceled on the afternoon of the third day. What a pity. On the other hand I returned home healthy and well, no more worry and uncertainty, that's nothing to be complaining about!
