The legwork you've done to get what you want out of your trip should pay off bountifully at the beginning of the week. On top of that, there's serendipity in the form of new friends, fun and maybe even a little flirtation. Something or someone may prompt your critical side around wednesday and thursday, but before you ask to speak to the manager, consider whether there's a cultural difference at work. Smiling and asking questions may get you further than complaining. This weekend a detail could get lost in the shuffle, despite your best organizational efforts. It's all part of the journey.
