I have spent the last couple of days kicking off a project in Bristol with 2 Norwegians and a lost more Brits. It has been quite funny working with Brits again after so many years of working with Scandinavians and other international folk. I enjoyed the work, but the trip through Heathrow was a pain and the Hilton was somewhat reminiscent of an old peoples home in layout and decor. Thankfully there was no smell of chlorine, just bleach from the swimming pool.
We did find a nice pub for dinner and we will be looking for a better hotel next time.
The UK head office is a nice old building with some eccentric details inside.
