Ne manger pas le sous-sol

So I thought I had told people all about it, but by the number of questions I've gotten recently, apparently I didn't tell as many people as I thought.

We're going to France!

I'm giving a talk at a meeting in Annecy, a picture-squee little mountain resort town in the Southeast corner of France, near the borders with Switzerland and Italy.

And since my plane and hotel (a very swanky hotel, apparently) during the conference are already paid for, kung_fu_monkey is coming along with me, and we're going to make a vacation out of it.

The meeting runs Monday-Thursday of next week, and after that we'll relocate to Switzerland and spend a week poking around the Alps.

We're hopping on a plane tomorrow morning and will be landing in Geneva on Saturday morning. And as soon as I hit the 'post' button, I'll have finished up pretty much all the things I wanted to get done before we go.

So au revoir and auf wiedersehen!
