Sorry for the longish absence. The new semester started and I was just swamped with work, meetings, deadlines… But I wish to announce my return (and to celebrate my promotion yesterday to full professor) in style with the following video, an orchestra of Kurdish truck drivers on the Iran-Iraq border. The conductor is the guy on the backhoe.
(Sorry I don’t know the origin of this remarkable video. It came to me on Facebook via Namo Abdulla at Columbia University.)
