I had dinner at Le Avenue a favourite restaurant among americans and the Brits along the Avenue Montaganie, a posh address. The food was good. It was with my Irish brother and my blond English cousin Emma.
I attended the cocktail reception at the show. The minister was there. The Chief was there. The Sec Gen was there and so were many old acquaintances from the industry.
That’s about it.
The flight tickets cost a good twenty grand. You add the cost of hotel and food you end up spending a tidy sum. That is the price you pay to be involved in the industry and I do not complain. You just have to combine business with other businesses and to spice it with the pleasure of travel and meeting friends.
I will be flying to Dublin to see a manufacturing facility. No more crazy horse for me.
