It seems like there are a lot of topics that I meant to mention, but notes from the trip have already been turned into several posts of meaningless text. So an incomplete list: the insane number of Hummer H2s on the streets of Miami, the beautiful people, the overtanned, jellyfish, children rolling in dirt, art deco museums, taxis in various forms, not being able to bring enough appropriate footwear, blisters, sharing a bed, being isolated from the news, not knowing the status of the war, poor highway signage, not getting sunburned, $90 tiki frogs . . .
Topics of cardiovascular epidemiology that I've decided are silly: the metabolic syndrome, pulse pressure, the amount of interest in c-reactive protein.
