Right now, Mike Zovath and I are at Gatwick airport. Last night I spoke in Oxfordand left a 2-minute phone blog about the meeting.
Things have changed a lot with security at the airport. I had a small carry-on, but wasnt even allowed to take that on the plane. I took my computer outand they wouldnt even let me take my camera on board as only ONE item is allowed with youONE VERY SMALL, VERY VERY SMALL item. Delta should have told this us when we left the USAbut they said our carry-on bags were fineso it seems there is confusion over what is allowed and what is not! All makes for interesting (and stressful) traveling. Flying is not what it used to be.
WellMike was back to his old tricks this morning. We drove out of the parking lot of the hotelhe got on the road, put the car in first gear and stalled it!! Ive been kangarooing over the UK with him!! But then againwe only had about three hours of sleep last night.
Once we get back Ill begin to put some more photos of the trip and the meetings up on the blog for you. The UK is not the country it used to be. In downtown Oxford, we tried to find a restaurant with traditional English mealsbut we found out from the locals there arent any! For lunch the choice was Lebanese, Chinese, Italian or a couple of very smoke filled Pubs! We chose Lebanese and had some grilled lamb. Just about everyone we dealt with in stores, restaurants, hotels etc. spoke with a thick accent that was hard to understandand they werent English accents. The world is certainly shrinkingit truly is a global village.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying for AiG.
