Easter Holidays have long passed and we are still waiting for a decent summer day!
Partially I escaped the cold but faced some tough days in China where we absolved a tight program covering:
Shanghai, Wuhan, Xiangfang, Xengzhou, Urumqi and Hami.
Moutai is certainly not everybody's drink but we got the full treatment! With music & dance, lunch & dinner!
After one day of recuperation in Switzerland I headed to
Moscow where we participated in a seminar titled "Progress 2006" at the State Educational Institution of Higher Professional Training
"Ivanovo State Textile Academy" and YES, I got a Certificate, not only for surviving the Vodka but for actually delivering a brilliant speech! We went to Russia to participate in a conference organised by the "Ivanovo State Textile Academy". The organisation was a bit chaotic but we
delivered our speeches and went on to visit some customers. Most prominently Rosko. On the way back we got in a horrible traffic jam.
This already in the outskirts of Moscow. The departure time of our plane at Domodedovo International Airport
came closer and we had no chance to get there in time.
So, we jumped out of the car to catch the Metro to the Moscow, Paveletsky
train station. There we sprinted to catch the Aeroexpress train. Bernie was the
forerunner and bought the tickets. I, with my belly pack (an economy "six-pack") had a hard time to follow but we reached the train just seconds before its departure and
made it on the flight. We even had time for a quick beer!
