Hello from Bermuda. What a lovely place. As I expected the people here are really friendly and it's very relaxed. The weather is a nice level of hotness with a gentle, cooling breeze. Perfect.
It's strange being abroad and in a British dependency. There are the odd reminder of home, like the flag, driving on the left and the traffic lights being just like ours. Apart from that it's quite American. The TV is all from the US (occasionally there's a glimpse of the show you're watching between the never-ending
adverts commercials) and even the international dialling code is the same as for America. The accent is that odd kind of British English with an American twang to it. Although most non-Bermudians here are British or Canadian (for tax reasons). It's really expensive though. Yesterday I bought some Golden Grahams for BDA$6 (same rate as $US). Today I bought a small Head & Shoulders for BDA$5. Both more than twice the price I'd expect to pay at home.
The Notes work I've been set doesn't seem that bad. Although I am already having a headache with Notes tables and general layout of elements on the page. Why won't they stay where I want them to? Damned ruler!
It's weird. It feels like I am back at the beginning of my career. I used a Layout region today for the first time in about 7 years. It reminded me of things I'd learnt that I would rather I'd forgotten. It's all been a good reminder of why I vowed to only ever work with the web. Next time I'm offered client work I will definitely turn it down. Unless it happens to be on the Maldives or something...
