Lewes, Day 1

I better post about this trip before I leave for trip number 2 tomorrow and start to get everything confused. This trip was to Lewes, DE, where KG has 1 of its 3 offices (and the other two designers are at the Lewes office).


Got up and left early in the morning to make it to Lewes around 10 am. The drive was super easy and I made it in about 2.5 hours. Since it was still early in the day I couldn't check into the hotel yet, so I headed to the office. As this was only my second day with the company, I didn't have a mountain of work awaiting me, which turned out to be a VERY good thing. As I had expected, there was a PC laptop waiting for me to use, and I tried to place nice. I thought I was pretty good at switching between the two platforms from my days of data transfers, but I was very wrong. The keyboard was smaller and had all sorts of extra buttons, and I kept mistakenly hitting 1 button that would delete the entire paragraph I had just written. It was a long day and I felt like I was just learning how to use a computer for the first time. Note to self- bring Mac laptop tomorrow.

After work I checked in at the hotel, dropped my stuff off, and ventured out to find some food. I quickly learned that only certain restaurants are open on certain days, and no store is open after 4 or 5 pm. I ended up going to the restaurant that is connected to the hotel (but only open on certain days) and ordered some crab cakes with a side of fries. I was the ONLY person in the restaurant, so I got great service.

Crabcakes with a side of fries, or fries with a side of crabcakes?!
