Off to America….

This week sees me jetting off to the USA for one of the last steps in a long project that I started putting together 11 months ago. I am due to visit South Carolina and a colleague of mine who is currently over there declared by text tonight that the temperature has been fluctuating a bit recently. Apparently its either -15 or plus 15 depending on the whim of the weather front that has been plaguing the east coast recently. I’ll hedge my bets and take a tee-shirt, a pair of shorts and a Parka. It takes a day to get out there and a day to get back with 2 days of project work sandwiched in between. I’ll get back to the house by the middle of Saturday so there may be a bit of radio silence until then! 🙂

Anyway that’s me all prepared for the trip with knotted hankie, string vest and cagoule all packed, although I may be forced to eat the pork pie and branston pickle before I get on the plane. I have also been practising my American vocabulary in advance although I havent been able to find the equivalent word for small portion so I guess I will just have to say “regular” instead 🙂

Not sure whats out there but I am taking a camera and will report when I back. Until then, toodle pip and what ho!

      really boring ones of looking out of the plane window but will post a couple

  2. I like those photos taken from the plane, it shows an angle that you don’t get to be in most of the time.

      this is true and was fabulous seeing the Big Apple from 30000 feet 🙂
