New York, New York….

Well, not strictly true, but it had a better ring to it than New Jersey, New Jersey.

My long awaited trip finally happened, and I landed in Newark Airport last night. I had a mini adventure getting to my hotel in my rental car, let's just say I got lost a few times, even with the assistance of the Satellite Navigation system in the car. I finally got into the hotel at 9pm, and let's not forget that my body clock was telling me it was 2am UK time !! Had a sandwich for dinner, and crashed.

Woke up this morning at 5.30 am (damn jetlag) and did some work, before jetting off for a 7am breakfast meeting with my manager. It's amazing how technology has made this world so different, until this morning, he was just a voice on the phone, and an email address, but today after working for him for a year, I've finally met my manager face to face !! After that, another meeting which went on for about an hour and a half, and it's only 10 am !!

 I'll try and post some pics today or tomorrow, there was snow everywhere when I got in, and it's bitterly cold. My wife just sent me an email about how hot it is at home, she's enjoying 16 degrees Celsius, while I'm dealing with sub zero temperatures.

Oh, and I should also do an overdue update on Baby O, who started daycare yesterday. Back to work, hope everyone is doing well.
