My role hasn't fully changed, yet, but we see which way the tide is going so we are adjusting our approach. Lately, everyone has gotten into the habit of checking the company org chart on Friday morning. That seems to be the time when changes are posted.
Even with the changes, I'm still traveling a bit. Some for audits, some for conferences. As I did last year, I attended a conference on Conflict Minerals in Chicago. Nice three day deal in downtown Chicago, but they definitely don't hold this gig in the local Motel 6. Very nice hotel right on the river - the Londonhouse. Great corner room on the top floor. Impressive views of downtown Chicago and the downtown river.
I am a bit of an architecture nut and love older buildings. If I hadn't gone into Mechanical Engineering, I was considering Architecture as a major. I find older cities and the building fascinating.
And nobody was climbing up the side of it...
On many of my road trips, if time allows, I will explore around the local area trying to find the more interesting/mundane things.
Enjoying some local street food and drink.
And a local piano bar. Since Ms Agg is a redhead, I just had to send her a picture of this.
I am a regular TripAdvisor contributor so I tend to review and rate the places I visit - hotels, restaurants, bars, venues. The hotel was supposedly just opened a month before as part of a complete renovation. I found the hotel very nice but there were a few quirks that I had noted. I wasn't really all that impressed with their elevator system, the room was an odd layout (IMHO poor use of space) and I found an odd situation in the bathroom.
And, of course, the throne room.
Can you spot what I might find as odd with this set up?
I've got a few more trips coming up. I will post up any pictures that may peak my interest. Like, perhaps, another dog run this weekend.
