Goodbye Atlanta

Time to say 'goodbye' to Atlanta. I have not seen very much of the city being in meetings all day and dinner and drinks in the evening with my new colleagues. Still, all being well, we should have another meeting like this next year and another chance to have a look around. I received just this morning an e-mail from a flickr friend, Carlos, who lives here offering to show me around, which was nice just a bit too late. I am still not alowed on flickr so was unable to thank him. Again, hopefuly next time.

Alos, I now know why I was not allowed on the Racing Post site and that is because all forms of gambling are baned in Atlanta, just as all internet gambling is banned in the USA. Oh well. One good thing about my company is that there are a number of peopole who are interested in horse racing and one who seems to have good inside information every now and then!

I will fly back with British Airways to Gatwick then have the nightmare of transferring to an Amsterdam flight, arriving just before mid-day. In the afternoon, I will try get access to my new work e-maiul address and watch the first floods of e-mails streaming in. Life will not be the same again!
