Expect light blogging this week because I have no idea whether or not I will have decent Internet access. I'm doing a whirlwind in 7 days - Boston - Miami - London - Romania - Miami - Boston. I'm leading some workshops and doing some presentations and other work.
I left Boston on Thursday for Miami for a meeting on Friday. I left Miami on Friday evening at 8:50 PM and landed at Heathrow 11:00 AM local time, on hour delayed. Since I had an eight hour lay over in Heathrow, I decided to book a Yotel. for a shower, nap, and wifi. It was worth it. The only mistake I made is that the transit between terminals is confusing if you are jet lagged, sleep deprived traveler. I was not able to figure out via the Internet the fastest way to travel between terminals and I did not account for flight delays.
I arrived in Terminal 5, but Yotel was in Terminal 4. I was told there was no bus and had to take the underground which took too long. There was a bus. So, make sure you take the bus.
The Yotel was great - I got a shower, nap, and wifi. I was able to call home quickly with my n95. After my time was up, I took the bus back to Terminal 5 and eat something and then boarded my flight to Romania.
If you ever go to Romania, and need to take taxi into town - don't let any "official tax drivers" fool you. There are different rates, etc. Take a yellow cab and look at the rates posted on the doors and pick the cheapest.
I'm finally at my hotel. It is 2:00 am Romania time, but 7:00 PM east coast time. I'm gearing up for a workshop on Monday. So I have Sunday to recover and prepare.
I am really curious to see if the profiles that exist in the US about Web 2.0 show up here in Romania or they are different.
