In Shanghai

Shanghai

On Friday afternoon, at the LMS meeting, I received from the outgoing President Simon Tavaré the certificate for the Senior Whitehead Prize. Simon gave a delightful Presidential Address, but now is not the moment to describe it. Then a very pleasant occasion at dinner after the meeting.

On Saturday we packed and went to the airport to catch a China Eastern Airlines flight to Shanghai, as guests of Yaokun Wu at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

So this morning we woke up in a hotel in Shanghai.

Reports may be intermittent for a while. Last night I discovered that some things work and others don’t; was it the conspiracy theory (blocked by the great Chinese firewall) or the cockup theory (the rather pathetic hotel wi-fi)? As I would expect, it was the latter. So I can connect to WordPress, but it is rather slow and painful.
