Wow, I Woke Up in England

Limagrain wheat conference starts today and I can't quite believe I'm here

I woke up in England this morning.

I had to look out the window to be sure, but yep, I'm definitely in England. We made it to our hotel in the quaint little town of Bury St. Edmunds, which the taxi driver told us is one of the oldest towns in this part of England, dating back to about 604 AD.

It was a kind of a rough arrival from Atlanta. Our plane was delayed on the ground for heavy traffic and we arrived in Amsterdam too late for what was supposed to be a 9:20 a.m. flight to Norwich. The next available flight was 12 hours later at 9:30 last night.

It was too dark to see much last night, but we have awhile to explore today before heading out to the conference which is taking place at Woolpit where we will learn much about the latest Limagrain research in wheat.
