Took bus to office, but couldn't find reception, after walking almost in a circle - about a mile found reception, there was no one there, so rang phone, told them who I was there to see, and the woman on the other end said she'd never heard of her and would look her up on the company database. anyway after 15 minutes the woman came to reception to say the person I was here to see would be here in a minute, another 15 minutes later she turned up, had the usual quick tour of one of the manufacturing buildings and went to the office.
Met up with the rest of the team except the other guy from the UK who was starting Thursday, went over all my tasked in a meeting I scratched my way through, after which I thought this job is about ten times bigger than originally though and was wondering if I'd done the right thing taking a job in Belgium.
As my equipment wasn't ready - surprise surprise, I just looked over some details I was able to get to on my personal laptop, for the rest of the day
Did stop for lunch in the canteen, they had several counters with some very odd looking meals, which I decided not to try and settled for a roll and meat and cheese, although the first packed meat I picked up was horse - that went straight back, and settled for salami.
