In my way back from the conference dinner last night, I went to the light show on the parliament building with some friends, a Chinese, an Indian, and an Australian. Like any other conference I've attended, I am the youngest. The three with me all looked pretty young. The Chinise were 31 and a PhD student. The Indian 27 and PhD student again. The Australian guy is a faculty of IT!
I talked for an hour to the Iranian guy named Abdi which just finished his PhD here in Carleton. In the elevator I met a young woman which was not as nice as other people here in Canada. The all say you hello, keep the door open for the next one, .etc. She was leaving the elevator at floor five when her housband out of the elevator said in not a good language "Where were you, I looked for you everywhere" in Persian. It was really hard not to saying "She was with me." in Persian while door was closing!
