Lab Thanksgiving with friends and neighbors

Our lab is proudly International - Jamaica, Canada, China, USA, and Brazil are all represented in our group of 6! However, that means that many in the lab are a long ways from family members and may not yet have groups to celebrate the Holidays with. But in science you always have a family in your lab-mates! So, the Blanco lab joined up with our neighbors, the Chakrabarti lab, and had a big potluck-style Thanksgiving celebration. If nothing else, it was a good introduction for many to the great American Holiday tradition of eating way, waaaay too much - and loving it!! See pictures for some good shots.
