We went to Brno (Southern Moravia) fro three days to present my research on roundworms contamination. It was a great event, the most important competition for young scientists in the country, however I didn't have time to take photos :( The original plan was to spend in Brno 2 more days and use them to see the interesting places of Southern Moravia, but my cousin at whom we were supposed to live cancelled it.
lived in a hotel in the university part of the city. What's better than
a fresh pair of towels with a little cute soap after a whole-day
journey by bus?
The view from the balcony:
was pretty hard to orient ourselves- accommodation, breakfasts, lunches
+ dinners, conferences, ceremonials, excursions... each of them in
different buildings. I get lost easily but luckily Aussie was there to
learnt a lot from the other projects and researches and especially from
the conferences. We also visited a greenhouse collection of orchids.
My project won the 8th place which means I definitely should be accepted to the Charles University (so much relief!) and I got a new microscope. We only tried it quickly yet. It's the first light microscope I've ever used that has a display instead of an eyepiece. It's not very good but sufficient for using at home for some easy biology fun :)
