Impressive! Your fun work activities make me feel slightly jealous, since I did not even take the time to go to Ponce to see the carnival. I had too much of - in a large part self inflicted "should have been done yesterday" work at the institute, so I though - nex year I'll play more. But now reading this I am thinking: I am retired for heavens sake, I need to play more, work less, so I need to rething this "working retirement" scheme... ;-)
