I’m back in Vancouver, trying to finish up the revised version of the paper with Malabika Pramanik on differentiation theorems. There have been a couple of developments since the preprint was posted on the arXiv and we have included these in the new version. More on that soon, hopefully before the end of this week.

Meanwhile, here are a few more photos from my trip to Spain, mostly on the odd side. The first one is from the Campo del Moro gardens in Madrid. With all due respect to Nassim Taleb…


This is a small cafe in Barcelona, near Plaza de Catalunya.


The next three were taken at the Madrid-Atocha train station.



That’s what all train stations should look like, as far as I’m concerned. Here’s a close-up of a level 3 pyramid.


And hello to you, too. This one was taken in the Parque de el Retiro in Madrid.


Also, who says that gardens have to be horizontal.


From the Juan Muñoz retrospective at the Reina Sofia – this one works on so many levels. Madrid has some of the best art collections in the world, including the Prado and Thyssen. I could spend months just exploring these two. I won’t even get started on that here – they deserve a separate post and I’m hoping to write one once I have more time.


The Matrix alive and well? No, that’s another train station – this time Madrid-Chamartin.


Just another piece of Spanish wildlife. Only moments earlier, this particular cat had walked in on a pair of ducks engaged in what comes naturally and interrupted the proceedings. Unfortunately I didn’t get my camera out in time to capture that piece of action.
