Merci taxi!

I am in Montpellier today for a general meeting of our EMILE ANR grant bi-yearly meeting, discussing ABC model choice and new applications of simulation methods in population genetics, including an upgrade of DIYABC into the 2.0 version. (The above is a picture comparing “true” Bayes factors with ABC versions, commented in my Zürich talk last Saturday.) In the taxi from the airport, I chatted with the Yugoslavian driver who seemed to enjoy very much the city and drove me to the CBGP in a record time, but I forgot my favourite North Face beanie in the car… Tonight at the airport, I had the pleasant surprise to find my hat waiting for me at the taxi stand! Merci, taxi!
