Finland    How to call me, mail to me, or get to me in Finland
Long summers from 1997-2012 have been spent on an island in the Baltic Sea.The Finnish Åland islands near Stockholm are where Saskya, my wife, studies wasps that lay eggs in butterfly larvae. The possible coming extinction of these butterflies is being carefully monitored in a massive ecological study (see http://www.helsinki.fi/science/metapop).

India:   Contact info in India
Five times in the past several years I have gone to India. Four times to work on a textbook with Rudra Pratap in Bangalore and once to adopt our new baby Prachi in Pune. Saskya and Mieke came twice.
