First Day on the Job

Had a reception in the department this afternoon, where we met people from around the University, the head of the Australian American Fulbright Commission, the University Vice-Chancellor (who is really the head), and some staff from the U.S Embassy. The Fulbright folks have scheduled me to give talks in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane, and Sydney. Everyone was completely friendly and charming.

We may even get to watch the New Year's fireworks from the U.S. Consulate in Sydney, on the 57th floor of one of the tallest buildings in the city.
