Chester and more

Chester bound today! History and stuff and not too much rain I hope - more to come.

Also: will write up about Die Vermessung der Welt, Daniel Kehlmann, German [well, he lives in Austria] bestseller about Grumpy Gauss the Great Mathematician, and Gad-about Humboldt the Travelling Scientist and Discoverer, geniuses of their day with a profound impact on science and our understanding of the world and beyond. Poignant too as they grow older and their powers are restricted by age and those around them.

Bis bald!
