This past week, I was in Turkey for the 13th International Summer School on Biocomplexity, Biodesign & Bioinnova. This was the a life changing experience. The Summer School was hosted outside of Istanbul at one of the campuses of Bogazici University in a hotel near the beach.
The interior of the hotel was lovely, especially the first floor which had many places to sit.
All of our meals were served at these tables, overlooking the beach.
Later in the evening, BEAR would join others in discussion. He was looking for advice in applying for graduate schools.
