Today I started teaching a week long virtual course in Brazil.
I am definitely being reminded of something that I miss when traveling somewhere to teach a course.I enjoy having meals with the students when I travel as I get to enjoy local cuisine and also learn more about the local culture.
The memories of food from my last course in Brazil flooded back today as I taught, and I could even recall the tastes and smells.
However, the virtual meals are not very filling.
So I still had to figure out something to eat at home as memories do not fill the stomach.
I do have one memory that I can relive from the trip and that is drinking Tang. I still have a few packets left of the ones that I bought during my last trip. Today I had a Citrus flavored Tang and tomorrow I may have Peach or Strawberry.
Today was a long day with a lot of lecture, but tomorrow will have much more hands-on and I can give my voice a rest. It is difficult lecturing virtually, especially when covering technical subject.
Having to be up very early because of the time difference is not much fun either 🙂
