On my way back from registration for AFPM in the Grand Hyatt on Saturday afternoon, I run into Bernard who tells me that he is just back from the tropical paradise of Praia do Forte in Brazil, where he was attending the 6th EBDQUIM conference hosted by the Brazilian association of chemical and petrochemical distributors Associquim.
It was great, he says, only while he was there he was bitten by wild dog and ended up having to have five rabies shots. He indicates the parts of his body where the five needles were plunged. I can tell he is still feeling this was a bit of an over-reaction to what he describes as a slight scratch. He also wasn't too impressed with his colleague Joe, who made a quick departure from the scene crying "I'll get a doctor."
