Roman Work-iday

Spent my first day in Rome yesterday. The Holiday Inn was crap, so I have since shifted to the sheraton, a nicer cheaper(thanks to my new gold status) hotel where I earn rewards points. I haven't gotten to see any of rome except for the two hotels, the airport, the customer site, and the TIBCO office. Our office here is spectacular. We are in a real Roman Villa complete with the cyprus lined garden, courtyards, and fountains (pictures to follow). Apparantly the family that owns the villa stilll lives somewhere on the massive grounds, but they rent out some of the buildings to a couple companies. Afterall, if you have to go into the office everyday, you might as well do it in style. When I get out this weekend I'll have more interesting stuff to post, now it's back to the grindstone

Glad to know you got there safely. The camping trip was great fun but it didn't happen in Rome, so I won't bore you with any stories. Hope you can forget you're working at least once a day while you're on your trip.

Well, as the Urban Outfitter T-shirts say, "Ciao Roma" buddy...
