My apologies for being a day late! I've been squiring about my Russian friend, Alexei Bezougly, in Philadelphia. Here he is at (inevitably) the Liberty Bell.
Yesterday I went with him to the Franklin Institute and took in the Galileo exhibit (featuring one of the two surviving telescopes that Galileo owned and used) and the Star Trek exhibition. A bit of cultural whiplash there. I may have to write an essay.
