Off to Romania

Tomorrow morning I'm off to Cluj-Napoca, Romania for the 2008 TEM/HEEP Area V meeting. Should be a good trip other than having to fly steerage across the Atlantic. This will be my first trip to Romania and I'm looking forward to visiting another Eastern European county and how it compares to the other ones that I have had the pleasure to visit over the past four or five years.

I'm going over with group of 10 HEEP members representing NY, NM, TX, ND, NJ and NC (lot of N in there) so not only will be a chance to meet with the TEM countries but catch up with some friends and see what's happening in the US also. This will be my 5th trip to Area V and I'm always amazed by our host countries. The meeting will have attendees from a dozen or so countries and will be conducted in ENGLISH (thank goodness for us Americans). Because if I had to give a presentation in Romanian I would be in trouble. While our host's and all the other attendees will be working in a language other than there native tongue. Make you wonder...

Anyway if I get a chance I'll try to post from Cluj if not I should have a few things to blog about when I get back. So stay tuned.
