Remember all that traveling I mentioned the last time I wrote? Yeah, well I'm right in the thick of it. I was in New York and Columbus last week, went to Bermuda Tuesday through Thursday this week, then up to New York yesterday and I'm off to London in about 45 minutes. I am there with clients until Wednesday when I fly back to New York for meetings until Friday afternoon. Whew!
[At least I get a couple of travel free weeks after that. I think.]
In case Ron and Pam are reading, Bermuda was shaken but not stirred by Hurricane Fabian. While there are some houses that have obvious damage (being repaired), and many trees were either uprooted or well pruned, they came through it quite well. Two of the hotels (Southampton Princess and Sonesta Beach) are closed, and some of the beachfront restaurants were heavily damaged and are not yet repaired (Cafe Lido, Mickey's at Elbow Beach), the rest of the island seems to be business as usual.
The causeway between the airport and the rest of the island was partially destroyed, but they have since repaired it. One night we had dinner at Aqua, the restaurant at the Ariel Sands resort (owned by Michael Douglas' mom), and while they had suffered quite a bit of damage, it was cleaned up and open for business. And delicious!
Well, time to get on the road - again! Cheerio!
