US Embassy

Originally uploaded by SwimFinsSF.

For those of you who don’t see me in person – I’m back from europe at this point and swamped with the mundane daily grind around here.. The rest of the trip was good – lots of work and interesting meetings with customers as well as some time to explore London. I’ve been to London before but I took some time to do a little sight seeing anyway…

My hotel was right by the US embassy which was kinda interesting. The Embassy looks like a bunker with nasty make shift fences all around it and a flock of peace protesters sitting out front – it was sad and cool all at the same time..

After exploring the neighborhood on Saturday I spent the day walking all over the place – lots of tourist stuff and other exploring. Buckingham Palace, St. James Park, Big Ben, London Eye, Trafalger Square, 10 Downing Street… Ya know.. all the important stuff! 🙂

And for my last night I went to see Avenue Q (which was fantastic) and then went to the Hoist (which was also very cool!)…

But now i’m back to the regular stuff… Lots of work.. Still fighting with the contractors.. That kind of thing..

Anyway – thats the update… Check out the pix if you’re interested! 🙂

Glad you are back!

The US embassy in Paris is also pretty much the same. Makeshift barriers and security guards as far as the eye can see. Interestingly enough, no peace protesters here.
