I say that because recently I landed a job with a global company at an office in London. Given the current odds of landing a job in London at all at the moment, that was pleasant surprise number one. Pleasant surprise number two of course was being flown to Detroit for meetings and greetings at the US head office.
I guess what I am trying to say is that leaving one’s vocational comfort zone can land you in the most surprising of situations. Plus this is also an opportunity to apologise to all those I have neglected to keep in contact with over the last hectic couple of months.
Pleasant surprise number three has to be the fact that the week before I arrived, the temperatures dropped to an unseasonably cold ‑25 Degrees Celsius, before returning to a more moderate average of ‑3 degrees. I love this city!
