Thoughts and travels of Patrick Lam

August: more trips

Lots of trips, not much work. August is OK to be a quiet month. August outdoors activities in NZ need to be winter-ish, i.e. you have to be aware of avalanches (or someone does; we went to ski resorts).

July: some small trips

Another usual non-teaching term month, with trips to Auckland, Turoa, and Wye Creek (Queenstown). New activity: ice climbing (to be used in the mountains). Paper submission and jury duty.

June: back to normal non-teaching term, writing paper after paper

A quieter month all around. Short visit to Gold Coast for Australian nationals, and just working on papers.

May: another big month

Much travel, especially on the West Coast of North America. Really did finish teaching.

April: finally done with Winter term

Whew! Finished teaching for Spring term. Western Newfoundland; around Montreal; and Brampton. Home repair.
