My father left academia in his 50s, having worked and lectured in electronics for over 20 years. He moved to Ireland with my mother, which is where I finished my education. He’s the engineer of the group, with over 30 US registered patents and over 15 Romanian ones. A scientist who loves classical music and the arts, my father's way of seeing the world has greatly influenced the way I make sense of it.
Listening to the three discuss history, politics, books, memories and so much more was a fantastic privilege. I hope I get to tag along to the 50 year anniversary of their hike.
