17'AGU@NOLA

Now I'm on the way "Road to Tokyo", and waiting for a next transit in Huston International Airport.

I attended the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting held at New Orleans (NOLA), and presented a poster regarding boron isotope measurements of planktonic foraminifera.

Convention center was really large laterally, so we walked several km a day every day!

This was my second time attendance to AGU, and I really enjoyed the science talks (and ABITA beers!).

During the stay I walked around the city, and touched exotic and unique atmospheres. It was interesting that even in the USA, French, Spanish, and African cultures mix in a very complex way. Food was unique, but really good.

Jazz was really awesome and we enjoyed live plays every night, everywhere.

The best jazz was that performed at Preservation Hall, so that I visited there twice! 
It looked like ad lib occasionally, but all sounds were harmonized perfectly! I was so excited.

Also, I visited a famous museum, World War II Museum. The way to exhibit history of this war was really nice, I thought a lot of things while seeing the course and the end of the war (a defeat of Japan). My knowledge on the war is based on junior-high and high school textbooks, so American perspective was really new for me.

In a final day I went to VooDoo Museum as well. The room was very narrow and had a really extra-ordinal air.

During one-week-stay, I saw a lot aspects of the USA.
