This month's map
Baker Hughes' annual executive leadership meeting is usually held in Houston but this year we went to the GE leadership training facility in Ossining, New York. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/GE-Global-Learning-Crotonville-Leadership/166479726706324)
It is an impressive facility and several GE executives spoke to us.
After the meeting I spent Saturday with my daughter touring the Frick museum (my favorite), going to the opera (Rigoletto set in Las Vegas, c. 1960) and dinner. It was a fun break before the long flight to Doha.
Meetings in Doha and Abu Dhabi were primarily for Baker Hughes but I did manage to have dinner with a few local SPE members.
Travel this trip (basically includes airport to airport) 12,350 miles. SPE travel to date 473,110 miles. Round trip earth to moon is 477,800 so almost back!
Countries to date (my counting rule is basically that I spent the night there with some sort of SPE content...not just went through the airport like New Zealand or Panama): 43
Trinidad & Tobago
United Arab Emirates
United Kingdom (Scotland, England)
