I will be in Zurich for the next three days to give a talk and take part in an interview. Blogging may or may not happen during that period; it would depend on time and internet connectivity.

Quick updates from New York:
Today I had the awesomest street food since I came to the US. It’s a cart near Times square, on 45 street and 6th Avenue and is called Qwik Meal. I tried the lamb pita and it is to die for. Think meat marinated into such softness that it feels like tender fish.
Following that, I headed to see Phantom of the Opera. Everything you have heard about this Broadway show is true. It was amazing. There were soaring vocals, amazing acoustics and really cool special effects (though I was a tad disappointed that the chandelier didn’t really crash down as I had expected). I guess what made my experience more memorable was my rather excellent (front orchestra) seat.
My plans for the weekend include visits to the Museum of Modern art, the Met, the Guggenheim, the Museum of Sex and possibly the Bodies exhibition. As a first time NY visitor, I deserve all the pampering I can afford on myself!
