This weekend we planned nothing special as the stress level from the week was at a peak and also had to spend some additional time doing some extra work as we are about to enter the last week of the collaboration. We did go on some enjoyable walks and shopped a bit around town and on Saturday met up with some friends from last year and had some good discussions over food and drink. Hopefully the future holds more time for the fun things in this wonderful city but for now the important thing is completing our projected goal!

Well Folks, this journey is coming quickly to a close and it is the last weekend before the submission deadline for the conference we are submitting our work to ( http://www.icmla-conference.org/icmla12/ ). 5 weeks seemed to really fly by, so just really trying to finalize the publication and wrap up our final experiments so we may include the results. We only took some short walks around the town this weekend, sipped some espressos, watching all the tourists do "touristie" things, but no lengthy, exciting tours as time is pretty short.

I just wanted to take this last part (in my last blog for this trip) to thank everyone involved in our collaboration, both 'home-side' and 'Parisien', for my experience here, for including me in activities normally not meant for 'outsiders' and trying to make me feel comfortable and at home (plus you can't beat having an office space with a view of the Eiffel tower!). I really appreciate everything, even those times when it may have seemed as though I did not (as I'm sure you now understand that, for me, work is the first priority and 'fun stuff' comes somewhere thereafter, iff time permits). I think that this trip really added new perspective to my character and helped me grow both as an individual and student, and for this I am extremely grateful!

Maybe the next 'European Vacation Collaboration' will be more along the lines of that Chevy Chase movie, doing the Moonwalk out of that trendy shop, sporting some new duds and stuck driving in a roundabout saying 'look kids, its Big Ben and Parliament', but as for now, with only three full days remaining before my departure, and a pocket full of new experience, its on with the work...

Until the next time...Merci Beaucoup! Au revoir et bon voyage! <- wow Osman, I learned some French! Cool

Well due to the week's work carrying through the weekend, we only had time to visit a very nice photography exibition for a few hours. Here is a link to it as there were no pictures allowed:  http://www.jeudepaume.org/index.php?page=article&idArt=1593&lieu=1. Hopefully next weekend there will be more time for fun stuff...until then.
