Another completely full day of meetings and technical talks – actually even more so. We stick around for a mandatory all-hands meeting at 7pm that our second-level manager is giving from Oregon (8am their time) – so my day runs from 8:30am till 8pm. We then head out to an Uzbekistan food joint.
It’s very much like the Marrakesh in Portland and great food. I get a wonderful Uzbeki pilaf dish of chicken, raisins, something like Spanish/spicy rice and the most gigantic beer glasses I’ve ever seen (they were 1/2 litre glasses).
We head out with two Russian coworkers and have fantastic time. The two guys are lots of fun, but by 11pm, I’m completely exhausted. I catch a cab and head home. Kind of bummed that today was so much work and not much outside fun. However, I’m clearing Friday off so that I can see some of the sights before we leave.
