The show must go on

Finance professor Jarrad Harford is all smiles, as he was able to stretch his meal voucher investment to include a hamburger AND a chocolate treat.

Oh, the glamor of international travel.  I’m writing this from my home on Saturday night, when I should be just about landing in Tokyo.  Seems that something was a little bit wrong with the plane that three of the eight of us were supposed to be on.  Every half-hour or so from the original boarding time, there was another hour or two delay, until finally, eight hours later, the flight was cancelled.  Better not to fly if the plane’s not in good working order, right?

Happily, technology enabled me to contact everyone and let them know we’d be on a new flight tomorrow.  The three of us will miss a day of content, which is a bit of a bummer, but the show will go on and the other faculty who have arrived safely in Shanghai will go forth and learn from two presentations and one company visit, as planned.
