Saw a snake!

Saw a snake while walking down from our house to the institute after dinner. It was about a foot long & quite thin -- and wriggling fast out of the path!

The KLI reminds me of MIT, not only because it is an institute, but also because people actually tend to work hard all day. They are very quiet in their offices -- if you want to talk you are supposed to go outside. The exception that is really different from MIT is that everyone is supposed to have lunch & to relax & talk then. It is when the scientific sharing gets done. It is great having 60-90 minutes dedicated to that every day! Although currently I miss it a lot because I have to go look at apartments.
