Today I am sitting in front of a new computer with old keyboard. It is hard to type. The hotel is good, the language is hard. Many don't speak English. The city is right on the black sea. it is really not black today, it is actually green. The banks own most of the hotels, and the hotels don't take US dollars. The IHY-Meeting started and I attended two seminars and I slept during the next two. The night before we went to a 300 year old village where we were entertained with the oldest from of dance, including dance on fire. I examined the skies. Very hard to know where I am I asked the locals if they new the constellations, one of them helped me with the big dipper which was almost overhead at 9:00 PM local.
