Virtually in Indianapolis

This week I have been virtually in Indianapolis. I am teaching a hybrid remote course working with a mentor for the hands-on portion of the course. I am observing from my dining room table, but the schedule of the course is on Eastern Time.

That means that I have to be up very early. Luckily the commute is only down the hallway as I have to start at 6 in the morning which is well before the time I usually get up.

It is also a bit of a pain as when they break for lunch the morning is barely started here. While they are breaking for lunch I am having a mid-morning snack and taking the shower I skipped first thing in the morning. Then I am trying to figure out a quick lunch while they take the afternoon break.

Indianapolis, family friends, house guestSince I have been virtually in Indianapolis I have been thinking of my last visit there 11 years ago. I had been teaching a class in nearby Crawfordsville, so let some family friends know that I was in the area. They invited me to come visit them after the class was done and spend some time with them before heading off to the airport

Indianapolis, sailors, soldiers, monument, circleI arrived early enough in the evening so that we were able to visit the Soldiers and Sailors monument in downtown Indianapolis. It is a fantastic monument.

family friends, indianapolis.I really enjoyed spending time with David and Karen. They have been good family friends for a very long time. Karen has been a good friend of my Mother since they were growing up together back in Iowa.

family friends, david, IndianapolisHere is a rare picture of me without a beard. I am looking at this picture and am thankful that I have lost a bit of weight since that time. My hair looks a lot darker also, must have been because we were in the shadows.

Indianapolis, statehouse, downtownAfter visiting the monument we walked over toward the Indiana Statehouse. I remember having a nice dinner at a Cuban restaurant, but do not have any pictures

My students are staying right in this area, so it was definitely in my thoughts this week.

I have more memories from the trip, so will probably share more of them in the next week.
