I’m back to work, and it is fantastic. Part of the first day was actually at an Irrigation Product kick-off meeting, where all the Irrigation Product sales people from around the country came in to touch base.

I’ve also spent time touching base with my work partner Su Mon, which has been fantastic. We’ve been working on mapping out the strategy for restructuring/launching the Energy business.
The office environment has been great. It feels like a start-up with everyone sitting together on the same floor and without cubicles or major obstructions to the flow.
This Thursday night I will be taking an overnight bus to Pokokku farther north in Myanmar (I think it’s about an 8 hour drive). I will be visiting towns and villagers there to better understand our customers / future customers (I plan to come back Saturday night / Sunday morning). I’m very excited.
Here’s a map:
That’s all for today. I’ll try to post another update soon, although it may not be until I am back in town after the trip.
