    I have to say that I’m quite impressed with UKTI and how they changed. Started to get involved with them 5 years ago and the best you could expect was to get a “US business” workshop you were patronized and told that “Americans are more direct than Brits”. No shit sherlock.

    Right now they’re holding events with the guys from Huddle (which have tons of practical advice), they’re on twitter, help with with strategic sales. And results are not just visible in London, I’m in San Francisco right now and the local consular team is sharp and extremely plugged in.

    Have to say that I am completely amazed by the turnaround. Happy that my tax money are used efficiently.

But I couldn’t figure out why I was getting such awful stomach cramps when I would set out to run later in the day. A few hours had always been long enough to digest my food in the past. After a few weeks of upset stomach during runs, I finally realized that I needed to give up the a.m. peanut gucci bags butter fest.
