Home again, home again

 Back in Italy. Next on the agenda... arranging for a visa to Brazil for the next IAU General Assembly, and getting ready for next week's "super-VOSS",

What's that? The VOSS is the Vatican Observatory Summer School, held roughly every two years, where 25 students from around the world spend four weeks here in an intense study of some aspect of astrophysics. The Super-VOSS is our irregularly held reunion of VOSS alums, one week long. We're holding a SuperVOSS this year, with the theme of astronomy and culture, to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy and to take advantage of the wide range of cultures that our alums represent -- 56 different countries, at last count.

Best of all, it is being organized by the alums themselves. Less work for us!
