Its amazing to think that its three weeks since Jim, Karen, Anatolie and I met at JFK to start our journey to China and the Smarter Cities Challenge! We have done and experienced so much of the culture and certainly the food! We have also worked together as a team to build our recommendations that we are now finalizing into a report that we shall be sharing with the Director of BEIT tomorrow. So we are working with the translators to translate the core sections of the report. Jean very kindly bought in for us some wonderful freshly baked egg custard tarts to keep us going. Once we have had the meeting tomorrow we shall be on the home stretch with only some fine tuning and packaging to be done for the final presentation to the Mayor on Thursday – at least that’s what we hope!
The weekend was spent working and we didnt have opportunity to do any more site seeing although a few of us decided to have a Chinese massage which was heaven. It made it difficult to get back to work but we did.
