A Busy January

The month is drawing to a close and I am looking back over a busy January.

The month began with me going Back to London. I had made a quick trip there just before Christmas and I had to go again to visit more customers.

Audley's Wood Hotel, Basingstoke, Hand Picked Hotels, Jane AustenFor most of my trip I stayed at the Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke. Definitely a beautiful place to stay.

Steventon Church, Jane Austen, Hampshire, RectorBasingstoke is in the middle of Jane Austen Country, so I was able to visit the church where here father served in Steventon when she was born and also the house where she lived near the end of her life. You can read more about these places in my post Jane Austen Country.

Pembroke College, Cambridge University, Library, Pembroke LibraryI also spent a night in Cambridge and was able to make A Visit to Pembroke College where one of my ancestors went to school.

It was then time to head home, but I only had enough time to go Home to Repack and then it was Back to the Airport the next morning.

I Arrived in Shanghai less than 48 hours after I left London. I arrived just in time to get some sleep before being in a classroom all week.

Chinese Soup, Chicken Feet, Noodles, Chinese FoodBeing in China meant a lot of great meals. I like real Chinese Food. It is much better than what you get at your typical Chinese restaurant in the US. However, you do run into some interesting food.

Shanghai Pudong, Pudong Skyline, Pudong at Night, Tallest skyscrapersOn the weekend I was able to do a little sight seeing including a good look at one of the most impressive Skylines in the world.

After almost two weeks in Shanghai it was time to go home. However, it was right back in the classroom for a week with only one full day at the office to prepare for the class.

I am really looking forward to tomorrow when I can finally start getting caught up with things at work. However, it is only a short respite as I will be working on several major projects the rest of the week.

At least February is a short month, but not as short as usual.
