Kempez Blogs From The New World

‘Ah but that circumstances were different’, I sighed to myself sitting on the icy cold platform of Oxford station and finishing Anna Karenina (not a good combination). Yesterday was the day when, according to late November’s sketch plan, I was to fly out to Rio. Mathematics can be a god-awful depressing business but it has it’s advantages, and a four week summer school in Brazil followed by some weeks doing maths with some of the world’s greatest Ergodic theorists was to be one of them.

Unfortunately I only found out about this all at the very last minute and in order to get a student visa I would have required a letter from the police saying that I had not been convicted of any serious crimes. Which, I hasten to add, I have not. But such letters take up to six weeks to arrive and need to be received before the visa application is submitted, thus putting the whole thing out of the realms of feasability.

Not to be upset by details however, Kempez’s blog is pleased to announce that it will continue as if ‘El Kempino’ were in Brazil for the next two months and regail you all with tales of South-American adventure.

adeus for now,
