Well, its pretty much a done deal! With exception to the formality of the decision notification by the defense evaluation committee, everyone who defended a thesis in Ghent seems to have done well! Its a huge relief to have the thesis and defense behind me. Now, to focus on more stress-free things, like what to eat in Hong Kong, which beach to lounge on in Thailand, or how to negotiate the swath of motorcycles in Vietnam. USA in T minus 7 weeks. Hooray for it all!
|I thought we could all do a Nixon pose to celebrate our defense. Nobody got the joke.|

|Con fofita Rojas.|
|5 public defenders (2 others were private later)|
