Well i’ve arrived and I’m blogging from Seattle before I hit the sack!
WE drove well through the snow (thanks Andrew) The 10 hour flight was an epic – we left late due to the snow – and I spoke to 2 lovely people, Dan, an American, and Natasha, a Russian. It was a pleasure to fly with them and be able to get to know them a little better.
I was met at the airport by Jordan, after a painless entry into the USA ( much easier than than getting out of the UK!!)
After traveling from the airport to the Abbey, I then went for a drink, or two, with Karen before returning to my home for the next 3 weeks … which is a great room on the ground floor of Jeanette and Ned Olson’s room.
First impressions … this is great and I am incredibly excited to be here …. if a bit tired (I have been awake for 24 hours!) … so nite
