Working from Home Part II
Yesterday was an All Hands meeting for the global technology group. It was webcast from the Belgium office and the New Hampshire office. Oddly enough the accents were mixed - American ones in Europe and vice versa.

Since I am remote, I painted my fingernails while watching the webcast. And did knee exercises. Interesting stuff being talked about though; I paid attention too.

Tomorrow I'm off on my first business trip in Europe. I'm flying to Amsterdam then taking a train to Gent. I'm nervous but excited!.

I thought it was called Ghent, but it seems it is both.
Have a good time.
I don't like Amsterdam airport much as they always seemed pretty anal about security...

I remember it being Ghent in the old days too.

"Gent" is the Dutch/Flemmish spelling, it seems. Given that, one wonders where that "h" came from.

I had thought that too, but it seems to be largely spelled "Gent" here.

I'm jealous — there's someone I'd like to see in Ghent. Well, maybe next you can meet her on my behalf...

That'd be fun in June. (:

Amsterdam, hm. You're just getting a train, so don't spend too much time in the 'coffee bars', or De Walletjes.

You might step outside of Centraal Station and check out the NNN miles to Wall Drug sign.

Have a delightful time.

I hope you'll be back in time for some pizza on the 1st. (Bring a guest?)

Thanks! I am indeed hoping to have pizza with a guest. That's my current goal, though it's jetlag-dependant.
