Country 72

February 2nd, 2013 at 06:32 am

We have a good client who has an emergency. I sent my best engineer out to his site, but even he has failed to find and correct the problem.

So, it is up to me to head out there. I'll either be a knight in shining armor, or a goat. There's not much room between the two in our industry.

Regardless, due to this trip, I get to chalk up country number 72 in my travels. East Timor gets the spot. I looked it up online. By the street names, it looks like they speak some variation of Portuguese, but I'm not certain. I guess I'll find out when I get there.

Now, all my other projects have to be put on hold for a week. I'm none too happy about that, as we have a very large project coming up that needs some up-front work. Oh, well. That's why they pay me.

    A man of the world, for sure!
    You caused me to spend the last several minutes looking at Wikipedia and the BBC country profile.

    East Timor!? Wow, that is definitely an exotic trip. I hope that your trip leads to some insurance of a resolution for the client, as well as some interesting and enjoyable travels.
