Portugal

EPSC Meeting Sep 2014

The European Planetary Science Congress was held this year in Estoril Sur Mer, on the Portuguese coast near Lisbon. We got to hear about the new Rosetta mission results, plus a 10 years of Cassini session, which I participated in. I loved the opportunity to see the portuguese language motherland, and to hear the sort of Spain spanish equivalent differences, most of which are a greater formalization. The town was just the perfect venue for the meeting, with hotel rooms one street away from the beach and from the conference center. There were lots of opportunities to meet up with other attendees in the small town, and to see the beauties of the coast. The rocky beach reminded me of Rocky Point in Mexico, and I won't soon forget the yummy tuna salad (literally, salad with tuna on it). We got a nice tour of a small fortress town just at sunset, when the colors were beautiful on the tiles.
