Sorry I haven’t blogged in close to 2 weeks. If you didn’t know, I was on a 11 day Europe trip to London and Amsterdam. Let’s talk about my trip first.

My trip was quite awsome! For the first 3 days, I stayed with my friend, Robert. We were quite efficient. Since he knew the way around town, we were able to cover a lot of stuff. Next 2 days, I stayed with my parents in a 4 star Mariott. It was much different than the 5 people/4 bedroom flat that my friend stayed in. The Mariott was a pretty good deal. The only downside is that it takes about 20 minutes with the tube to get to central London. Canary Wharf (where the Mariott was at) was not a totally dead place either. There are shopping centers and bars around there too. The next 3 days I went to Amsterdam by myself. I figured 10 days in London would be too boring. I am glad I went. Amsterdam is a GREAT city to visit. Beautiful buildings and canals. Van Gogh museum (over 200 Van Gogh paintings)! Great people (that speaks English too). And the city is extremely liberal (weeds and prostitution are legal). I highly recommend people to visit Amsterdam. London is a great place too, expensive city though.

As far as training goes, I haven’t swam, biked, or jogged in 2 weeks. I did do A LOT of walking during my trip though. I guess that counts. I lost like 3 pounds on that trip. I think my legs were actually injured from all the walking. My ankle and IT band started complaining in Amsterdam. My feet was in pain as well. Man, I am getting old.

About work, we are pretty busy nowadays. We are launching free TV streaming on Monday. It is done for the most part. We are mostly tweaking it and tying up the loose-ends. It’s kind of scary. I’ve never worked on something SO high profile before. I have faith in us though. WE CAN DO IT!

Hmmm, what else… Well, I am getting sleepy now, so I’ll end it here. Good night, ladies and gents. ELY OUT!
