My day trip to Albuquerque was quick and fun. I enjoyed seeing a few of my fellow telecommuting co-workers and had a nice meeting.
Jenny Wilson (our trade show manager) was kind enough to pick me up and cart me around all day. She set up a nice lunch at her favorite Mexican food restaurant. Per Rashan's suggestion, at lunch I had a #1 combo. I can see why they both enjoy eating there, it was VERY good and I ate far too much for my own good.
I really loved the mountains that overlook the "burque" as my native friends call it. They are beautiful.
All in all, it was just a gorgeous day. Beautiful weather. Wonderful friends. Great work meeting. And THEN, I got to go right back home. That is my favorite kind of trip. FAST!
Gotta love the double mirrors in Jenny's van. She thought I was kooky for focusing in on them with my camera. Maybe I am. But, I think the double image looks so neat.
And finally, Jenny drove me the "Chevy on a stick" on my way back to the airport.
A big thanks to Jenny for putting up with me all day long. She is far too kind. We are very lucky to have her on the Soft Flex team.
