I’m in Denver! As usual, I found out last minute that they wanted me here ASAP. Since we had Tigers tickets on Monday night, I agreed to flying out on Tuesday.

At least they are letting me fly home every weekend (though Brad has to work every Saturday in May, so that sucks)

Denver is nice; I somehow expected it to seem really different, but it doesn’t – maybe because from downtown you can’t really see the mountains. There is an entire street that is closed to traffic called the 16th St Mall with tons of shops and restaurants of all varieties, so a nice place to take a walk and pick out a restaurant for dinner.

Our office is huge – 2 entire floors of the building. Our project is enormous – there are 3 others here from out of town to help, so having company is different. We’ve been doing lunch and a few dinners together, which I think has made this trip easier – not having to always eat alone makes a big difference and we try not to talk too much about work. So far my food highlights have been: an amazing smoked duck sandwich, getting to have my favorite dragonfruit mojito at Rock Bottom, and trying Indian food for the first time (at a food court!)
