Actually, Nick, I wouldn't say it was perfectly organized, but I guess most of the things went according to our plans.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit to Portugal! Definetely, Fórum Fantástico was an enormous success because of you and our other guests. I was able to have some fun, and I'm sure Rogério also. On Sunday evening, I was even quite sad for being over. So much time spent on making this convention possible, and then it so quickly ended. I'm sure I'll always cherish the memory of these special days.

Thank you, Nick, for being so kind and attentive to us.
And hopefully, next year, or the other, we'll have another blast with Everfree! ;)


And thanks too from me Nick, for an enjoyable Forum, and an enjoyable evening of Super Bock!

Having read your posting about your feeling wistful on your Dad's birthday, just thought I'd say that he's also missed by an entire generation of science communicators. In many ways, given his humanitarianism, his rationalism and his forthright outspokenness, his writing often had a quality similar to Orwell's. We miss his voice.

Não tem de quê, Nick, meaning you're welcome (anytime!). Thank you for all your cooperation, you've been the perfect guest for the entire visit. And, as you've personally experienced, Portuguese fans were delighted for having you here!
Also, Inês, Ricardo and me (as well as all Presença's team) would like to thank you and Clinnette for the most delicious chocolates ever!
Do enjoy your travels and...keep writing!
