Arrival in Philadelphia

So, here I am! I got here totally hassle-free, which is always the best way. Things started this morning with a coffee with Tiffany my Programme Officer and then we headed to the Eisenhower Office. I met lots of people there, including short meetings with the Director, Vice-President, Alumni Director etc. Got my laptop (they’re lending me one), and talked some details of the itinerary with Tiffany. Still not clear quite how things will pan out at the end. I may yet go to New York and not to Boston. Not quite clear where in California I’ll go. And we might be slipping a day or two in Dallas in there as well! The Eisenhower people are remarkable efficient and well-organised, as well as super-friendly. Looks like it’s going to be a great 8 weeks!
