London Update 07 January

Hallo folks. Today was my first day at the North American Sports Network‘s London Office. The office is very small and only has a staff of 6-7 people including myself. The main office is in Dublin which I may get a chance to visit on a day trip should there be a need. The people at the office seem fun and I think part of my tasks will be running around doing things for the office such as making tea as I had to do this afternoon for a meeting. I had never made tea before so it was a learning experience never the less. The office couldn’t beleive that I had never made tea before which made a for a good laugh. In another intersting twist, several events this month that the NASN will be sponsoring are located in Minneapolis, MN. How funny would it be if I was to travel back home to cover an event? Intersting thought I guess. The commute to work isn’t too bad. I get on one underground train and ride it up about 8 stops before changing to another line for one stop and then walk a block or two. Total travel time is roughly 45 minutes (my iPod is for sure getting a work out this trip).

Tomorrow I head in to work at 09.00 and then will meet up with my cousin Christopher around 17.30 for dinner while he is in London. Wow, have I been here a week? Man does time fly. Not sure on the weekend plans yet but thena gain, it is only Wednesday evening. Might do something with Christopher or with my Eckerd College friends or even both. Peter and Pam Bertrand arrive back home on Sunday so I will finally no longer be on my own per say in London.
