We pulled it off! In late August the lab rented a big ol’ van and road tripped it up to Boston and Cape Cod for a two-day retreat in Massachusetts! Fueled by music and coffee, we made it up North in great time. The lab spent Day 1 seeing Boston and Cambridge and meeting with colleagues, collaborators, and some old friends. At night we debated science and philosophy till the wee hours of the morning, nearly causing Yumi to quit the lab! Day 2 was spent relaxing on the beach in Cape Cod…see the pictures section for some fun action shots!
