My second work trip (not counting Folkecenter, where I had no responsibilities…) begins tomorrow – flying to Nantes for the EcoCity Summit and World Urban Campaign Steering Committee meeting!
I feel significantly less nervous than before Nairobi. Partly because this is my second time at one of these conference/meetings, but partly because the stakes are lower… no UN Governing Council, just a conference, just networking and ideas-gathering.
That’s not to say I don’t feel nervous. But I don’t feel like throwing up. You know, progress.
It’s also in France instead of Kenya, so somehow that helps with the familiarity thing… I know more of what to expect of France than of Kenya.
This is the first time my boss will be there, though. So that’s new. And I have to try harder to prove myself in front of him. Sigh.
After the work’s over I’m going to PORTUGAL! First to Coimbra to visit my friend Jens and then a day in Lisbon! CANNOT WAIT :)
