Tuesday, July 31: Antje: Santa Cruz; Mark: Las Vegas

Mark went on a morning walk and spent most of the day playing poker; I was really busy despite the fact that there was only one lecture today, and then a performance by Miriam Margolyes in the evening, of her one-woman show “Dickens’s Women.” We had to do quite a lot of set-up and tear-down, but the show and the preceding dinner were great. And the morning talk by Rae Greiner was pretty good as well.
