As a taste lab, we could not have missed taste festival
Annual clam chowder festival in Ithaca. Perfect tasting event. And a chance to experience the cold of Upstate NY. Jun was not ready for the cold for sure. But he survived; with the help of the hot chowders. When in ithaca, you cannot skip the waterfalls. Here Ithaca fall and Taughanock fall (taller than Niagara falls)
A visiting scholar from Japan
Jun, a PhD student from Ron Tanimoto's lab at Tohoku University in Japan will be staying in the lab for 6 months. Working on time perception in flies. Here is eating his first American burger at Burger Monday restaurant. Actually, I think he ordered chicken but at least the portions are massive.
