Hi Gunnar,

Thanks for your thoughts! Responding only to a couple excerpts out of order:

Indeed it won't; as I said in a follow-up, apparently the conference housing
people will be providing window A/C units for those lodgings that don't have
it. And regardless, yes, NY temperatures will be much milder than Extremadura.

Yes, that's correct, though NYC weather varies a lot more than many parts of
the world - we can have hot periods right before or after cold periods. The
humidity is really the subjectively bigger change. It feels different enough
for me to have mentioned weather as a factor, but personally I don't think my
preference for the June weather outweighs all the other advantages I see in the
July/August dates.
