it is finally happening...

Guess what... I am sitting at a convention center alongside a few thousand people, waiting for my Citizenship oath ceremony to begin. The feeling is a bit strange... I thought I didn't care too much about it, as I have been waiting SO LONG for this day... But right when I pulled into the convention center parking lot I felt... Excited! More on this later (with pictures) once I am on line with my laptop!

Fighting the Flu In Alaska...

Sometime between boarding my flight in L.A. and deplaning in Anchorage I caught the flu...

At least they have a sauna in the hotel to help me sweat the virus out... Otherwise YUCK.

At the end of my business trip in Minneapolis. No matter how many times people tell me that it is "not that cold", I just don't think my body is able to adjust to the cold like before (when I lived here). Last night while walking back to my hotel from the office (~9 blocks) I saw girls walking around wearing what people would wear in the summer... in Los Angeles! All the while I had a shirt, sweater, jacket, coat... and a scarf. Let's see how I am going to adapt in Alaska in two weeks - just in case if Mount Redoubt blows I am bringing a few basic necessities per FEMA's recommendations: respiratory masks, google...

Feeling Minnesota...

| No Comments


I flew in to Minneapolis for our annual sales kickoff meeting on Tuesday night. It was about 75 degrees in L.A. when I boarded the plane, and 5 degrees when I stepped off the plane. BRRR.

I had planned to walk about 15 blocks from my hotel to one of my favorite chinese restaurant after I che led into my room, but the 8 block trek from the light rail to my hotel turned out too be too much for my "west coast" adjusted body.

I ended up having dinner right by my hotel :P

Two more days here and I SHOULD be closer to adjusting for my upcoming business trip to Anchorage, Alaska...

... And hope the Redoubt volcano doesn't blow while I am there!
