I felt confident walking in and I did have a good time. They had good food and good beer at a great price. I’ve also found Google Maps to be handy one the sole occasion that I drove. With their integration of Waze made sure that I got from point to point in the most efficient manner possible by helping me to avoid traffic wherever it might be.

Speaking of meals, my client took me to this Indian restaurant in Birmingham:

The food was great and the portions were huge. How huge? Here’s an example:

That’s huge!

I’ve finished up my assignment and I’m back at my hotel getting ready to return to Toronto. The last part of my travelogue will be to discuss my journey home. Stay tuned.
