Trashy on the road – part 3

It’s lunch break here at the OECD and I’m giving a presentation in a while. Interesting organization, the OECD. Very large and bureaucratic but a broad range of issues. Makes for good corridor discussion fodder.

Haven’t done much in the way of touristy things yet. Had a nice dinner on a patio with a professor from Australia and another academic from Germany. Very engaging folks, good food and a helluva atmosphere.

We are promised that the session tomorrow may end a bit early. That may let me go a little further afield from the immediate ‘hood. First stop will be to see if I can pick up a camera for super-cheap.

And oh yeah – the coffee is GREAT! And consistently great. I remember that from the last time I was here! None of that weak-kneed Timmies crap here.
