This is the office building in Cambridge where my company has an office. I found out the business office is in London, but the engineering office is here. I like this office better. People are packed in like sardines, but everyone is working hard for a big roll-out they company has coming up.
I am enjoying my time in England. Everyone here is super nice to me. I have been introduced to some of the most wonderful food like "bangers and mash"
I have been taking pictures of all lot of the food I have eaten on this trip. It's not very pretty, but it was incredible!!!
Today my American co-workers flew home, so I am here alone. I usually don't mind traveling for business alone, but usually it's just for a 3 or 4 days. Not 2 weeks. I miss my kids. I miss K.
Most of all, I miss T. I miss him a lot. He is doing his best to keep in touch. Between the long hours he works and the 5 hour time difference, it is not easy. I bought an international texting plan before I left. It was expensive and I almost didn't get it. I'm glad I did. Being able to text with him is all that is keeping getting depressed with loneliness.
I have not had much time to be depressed though. I have been working hard during the day and into the evening. Then dinner with my American co-workers (who are now gone) and then it's into bed. Then up early the next morning to do it all over again.
There are a lot of Asian people here. Most of them are younger. Probably students at the colleges that make up Cambridge University. Most of them are people I pass on the side walk and they hurry past me on their way to where-ever they are headed. In there cases where I see they are talking, I strain to hear. What is cooler than an Asian guy speaking with a British accent? No luck though. All the people I have heard talking are speaking a language other than English.
Tomorrow, I am going to get up early and hop a train to London. I'm going to head the London Eye.
I'ts just across the river from Big Ben and other touristy things in London. I really don't have a plan and I'm just going to see where my feet take me. I am just hoping that the rain will hold off.
I am hoping it will be fun. I am going to do my best, but I know I will not be able to stop thinking how much I wish T was here with me to share it.
