Well, I really misunderstood how lonely traveling can be. The first couple days were OK. I ran into some of the competition and spent the first two nights with them at dinner.

That was actually kind of fun. My job was to just look around and ask questions at the booths. I was supposed to write a report on the convention and the market.

Well, that was fun for the first two hours. The rest of the time was just plain boring. My friends at the competition actually went back east on Tuesday and I was left there until my flight home on Saturday morning.
