Meeting Girls from Google

I made my way over to the towering Omni Hotel at Champion’s Gate, on the flat plain that is Orlando FL. Unbeknownst to me I was not staying in this palace, but at the nearby Radisson. I met up with Jim Zhu who I’ve known for some time, as he runs the website and we use his database for tours on GoNOMAD.

We visited the poolside opening cocktail party, where there was barely enough light to see anyone’s nametag. And that’s a problem since you gotta know who you’re trying to talk to. Eventually a couple of young women from Google walked by and we chatted them up. I asked one if it was possible to actually call Google and ask them questions. “Oh yes,” said the taller one, and rattled off an 800 number that I can’t remember.

“We just work,” she said, laughing. “I don’t bring my dog to work and I’ve never gotten a massage…we just go to work every day.”
