Trip to Lyon

This was my first trip to Lyon in about… 35 years, I think, but I did not have much time to tour the city! My original plan was to go climbing with Ivan near La Meije right after the talk, but our respective knees were hurting for the past week at least (since Utah in my case…), so we decided to postpone. I think the talk itself went on rather ok (?!), with good questions for possible extensions at the end. And Martyn Plummer (the creator and maintainer of JAGS) came with a most relevant question about the difficult comparison with completely independent MCMC chains, a point Colin also raised a while ago.
