Super what?

So this weekend was the superbowl, I didn’t watch it. I’m not sure what’s super about a bowl maybe it has some good cereal in it or something. This is the second time I’ve been out during the super bowl and not watched it, when I eventually move out here I suspect it will become a tradition.

Benefits and lucky chance

One of the little perks of travelling abroad (which I guess I’ll have to give up when I move out here) is the meals. Because you are on your own away from family and friends living in a hotel room with no kitchen facilities people often take you out for a meal.

Visa Arrives

So my passport was returned a little earlier. It takes up a page in my passport and rather redundantly contains a photo of me, which my as my boss put it makes me look like a serial killer (which I guess is par for the course).

Anyway I have my licence to live and work in the US just now need to sort out a few of the in-between steps.

Talking with estate agents

Spent saturday going from estate agent to estate agent finding none of them had anyone useful in on a saturday. This meant I spent monday fielding calls from the people I wanted to talk to on saturday . None of them wouldn’t talk details over the phone so I had to make appointments with them. The up shot of which is I’ll be seeing a range of them over the next two weeks.

A Visit to the US Embassy

So today I had my appointment at the US Embassy which is in London. I had to get there for 10am so it meant getting up early and catching the 8:15 train to London Paddington.

It’s about a twenty minute walk to the embassy from the station which takes you past marble arch and the corner of hyde park. It was a nice enough day and I had time so I wandered over.
