Well it was the first day of YAPC::Europe today, and that was quite an experience .
I was supposed to go with a couple of others from work, but other commitments meant that they had to stay at work. There were a wide and diverse array of people there, all shapes and sizes :)
The day started a little slowly for my liking, but when we got into the talks I knew that my time would be well spent.
Today I had lunch with two Americans which was very interesting, one of the worked for a medical insurance company, and he explained the way the medical system works over there, and that amazed me.... $1000 for a trip to casualty
