I haven’t been abroad for IBM in a while but I spent last week in Paris. Or at least pretty close to Paris in La Défense which I didn’t escape from due to working far too many hours! Still, I’ve been sent to less interesting places; not to name names but I stayed somewhere that used to be called the Clinic View Hotel, and that really was about as interesting as it got!
There was a big practical advantage to staying in La Défense since that’s were I was working, so I could just walk to work. I like walking and there were some great buildings to look at along the way, which made for a very relaxing commute.
I dream of being able to walk to work every day.
