London Weekend Chapter 4

After a very busy Saturday with hours of walking and lots of good food I opted for a slightly slower Sunday. I slept in a bit longer and took my time getting myself together and out of the hotel.

Casa Negra & Union Jack

Last night my team and I were treated to dinner by one of our SVPs of sales to thank us for the work we do managing her accounts and keeping the clients happy.
