Enroute back from Charleston I stopped over in Washington for a night. This was a great opportunity to visit iconic sites like the Lincoln and Washington Memorials and the White House, but also to catch up with Lindsay Chura, ‎Senior Policy Advisor, Science and Innovation at the British Embassy in Washington. Lindsay organized the Falklands trip in January. We had an interesting walking meeting, enduring hot and hazy pre-storm weather while catching up on collaborations since the Symposium and talking about the next steps for advancing science and diplomacy in the region.
