Last week I was in Mexico and gave a keynote talk at the International Congress on Multidisciplinary Research at Monterrey Tec (more formally Tecnologico de Monterrey). The general chair was Dr. Marco Iván Ramírez-Sosa Morá n who turns out not only have be working on some interesting topics in control theory, but to be an extremely nice guy. The meeting and the campus were quite impressive. It also didn't hurt to have a chance to warm up a bit. In addition, I had a chance to visit Luz Abril Torres-Mendez who is now a faculty member at Cinvestav in Saltillo, Mexico. Her lab is looking at computer vision systems for underwater vehciles, among other things, and thus shares several interests with our own lab.

In a bit of free time one afternoon I visited the Desert Museum in Saltillo. It's quite diverse and includes an exhibition on fossils, dinosaur reconstructions, a huge taxidermy collection, a substantial live snake collection (serpentarium), various cacti, and lots of other stuff. Well worth checking out if you are in the area.
