China recap 2: a visit from Jon

Posted by Arianne:

In early July, Jon Harrison — an insect physiologist and my other co-advisor — visited China and IMGERS for the first time. We had a great day and a half introducing him to the field site, hashing out ideas, and coming up with solutions to make all four flight mills work simultaneously! Unfortunately, his son got sick and didn’t have so pleasant an experience resulting in an early return to the U.S. Luckily, he’s doing well now. We hope to see Jon at IMGERS again next year!

Before we could get Mike anti-nausea meds, all Americans had to get their temperature taken. Luckily, we were all a balmy ~36.5C and below the quarantine cutoff of 37.5C. I'm pointing the thermometer -- a contrast to the temperature guns they were using on planes.
