Work in Austin......

And so, with a blink of an eye; my 2 week business trip is coming to an end and I will return back to Toronto on Sunday. Despite having much trouble crossing the border; it was pretty good to visit the new company campus, meet with the team, and to associate a 'face' with names of people that I had been always exchanging emails with. Folks that I had met with in Austin are friendly, and I liked their sincere and genuine attitude... Despite I was brought up in Toronto, I somewhat preferred the work atmosphere here down in Austin.
Chairing and attending calls between Austin / Toronto / Sunnyvale is a very normal thing in everyday activity here, and by comparison; I see that the Toronto folks are more crafty and political. At one point, the team here and myself were fed up with the antics of some 'individuals' up in Toronto; and all of us had a common thought: "Dang, just let us get back to our work; you political clowns..." Oh well, I guess there's ought to be these things in a company this large, and I've seen much worst when managing a team in SH, so luckily it's nothing new to myself. Anyways, tomorrow is a day off to scenic locations of town to snap more nice pics and to stroll around some malls before heading back towards the end of the week... Here's some pics of Austin using new techniques my co-workers were showing off to me earlier :)

I went to Mount Bonnell at the end and it features pretty nice scenery down into the outskirts of Austin... Had been lazy, but let me update with some pics soon...
