It is not as though I have a firm grip on what is going to happen just yet, but in fact it is looking like the stalemate has been broken and the deal is going to be made. In fact it is not the deal we want and it is not the deal that they want, but it is something and so I shall not have wasted the past three weeks. Right now my guide and I have been sitting around watching soccer. He is on this site called https://xliga188.com, apparently betting on all sorts of matches all over the world. It is pretty obvious to me that he has a real obsession with the game and perhaps even more on gambling on the game. It is not of much concern to me, although I met his sister and she was obviously very concerned that he is going to end up blowing everything. I really thought she was flirting with me and so did he, which made things rather awkward.
At any rate I expect that I shall go through London next week and stop there to meet with the people who shall actually have to figure out how to execute the deal that I have made. I have kept them in the loop all the way, they were the ones who needed the deal even more than the guys in the upper floors of the headquarters. If things go to plan I should spend a couple of days there and then go home. I plan on taking a couple of days off after I tie up some loose ends. If possible I think that I shall go and see my Dad for some fishing. The stripers are going to be running and he is going to want to get some in the boat.
