I received a couple of emails today about the Anita Borg networking retreat. (Still looking forward to it!) A quick query, and I discovered that yes, Google are happy to book my return flight a few days later. Their plan was to return me to my country sometime on the Saturday afternoon, but I think I’ll ask for something coming back on the Tuesday afternoon; that gives me nearly half a week to explore. Yay, exploring!
(I must brush up on my German. I gather that the Swiss accent is very different, so I’m not sure how much it’ll come in. Still! It’s nice to make the effort, and I’ve been meaning to go back to my German for a little while.)
