Canadians, Americans and Russians visit Cambridge

John Gibbs sent a photograph from the USA so that I would recognise him on his arrival in Cambridge. As subsequent photographs show, he is more relaxed in the U.K.

John Gibbs (Northwestern University, Chicago) arrived at Heathrow at 8 a.m. to be followed by Professor Patricio Mendez of the University of Alberta. This is John relaxing.
