Park City

Park City

I am in Utah for work and have been so busy I haven’t had the chance to write any posts or read any blogs. It’s a good busy though as I’m getting to meet so many of the talented people I work with. Even going to the toilet can be a challenge because I see people I know en-route but have never met and end up stopping to chat. It’s lucky I haven’t wet my pants yet. Although I did lock my room key in my room on the first day and spilt tea on my breakfast yesterday. I’m also giving two talks today and am a bit terrified about that. I also seem to be suffering from jet lag, insomnia, and have a headache.

It’s a beautiful spot. We’re in Park City which is about a 50-minute drive from Salt Lake City and at an elevation of 2000m. Here are some pics of the local area.

  1. That dry landscape looks a bit like South Africa šŸ™‚
    Sounds like you are having a great time. The altitude won’t help with your headache – maybe try drinking more water? Of course, this would have the side-effect of worsening your loo trips!
    I have missed your posts – and thought you might like to see one of mine on Red squirrels – when you are back in the blogging world!
    Good Luck with your talks. Once you begin you’ll be fine. šŸ™‚

    • Yes, I’m sure the altitude is having an impact. It’s incredibly dry here too. I can feel the dryness in the air. Red squirrels, eh? I’ll definitely check it out.

      • Johannesburg is at an elevation of nearly 2000 metres and very dry too. It took me a year to acclimatise when I moved there from the UK!
        I hope your talks went well, and you can relax and enjoy the rest of your stay. šŸ™‚

  2. Good luck there, the best happy engineer I know. Of course you’ll rock! Exercise, drink more water, visit the lol more frequently and transfer the meeting to the restroom!! Just kidding!
    Have a great time!

  3. You’re a busy lady Rachel! Lovely area, hope your jetlag passes quickly and wishing you all the best with your speeches, sure you’ll shine šŸ™‚ Thanks again for all your help recently, really appreciate it šŸ™‚
