That's because the International Symposium of Pterosaurs is then meeting in Rio de Janiero. It's everything I could ever want: it's pterosaurs. It's Brazil. One of the images on the site is a Tupuxuara sporting a Brazilian-flag-themed crest, for crying out loud. It's just... Too perfect!
Unfortunately, money for me is about as abundant as pterosaurs are. Hopefully, some day I'll be able to attend this pterosaur symposium, when I'm an actual professional. A man can dream of flying reptiles, can't he?
