*Translation: A bit of August in Copenhagen. I’ve not spent the whole month in Copenhagen because my granddad, who lived a good life and to a ripe old age, passed away at the beginning of this month and I took compassionate leave to attend his funeral in Hong Kong. The positive side to this trip was that we got to meet our two newest cousins — a 3-year old girl and an 18-month old girl who were very cute and definitely brought joy to the occasion. In addition, I also had two planned weekends away! (It is summer after all. And I now live in Denmark where summer holidays are a human right.)
Since my brief update after being in Copenhagen for one week, I’ve had a good July! If I had to score it, I’d give it a B+ because it’s been very sunny and the majority of my important admin has been sorted out but my science has been slow in terms of new experiments (which is to be expected when moving labs).
