Blogging the Annual Meeting- Day 1

Sunday- travel day!!! up at dawn, off to the airport...

crowded for a Sunday morning, where are all these people going? apparently, Phoenix...

typical travel hassles, long flight, driving in a strange city, getting lost...which way is east anyway?...found my hotel...eventually...some dinky little efficiency...everybody else got rooms at the main resort...oh well, off to find that...

arriving at the resort, it's so big I can't find the front door, oops, I mean main entrance, lobby, fountain/ reception area, etc, etc, etc...beautiful...

wander around a bit, check in with ISPE, no big lines...no problem...

off to the exhibit hall...it's booth central...trying to find my colleagues...

here we are, all set up and ready to go...It's "meet and greet" time... standing up for the rest of the afternoon, introducing myself to people I don't know...seems obvious, but it's a bit of a stretch for me, and others, I suspect...

dinner was out on the pool patio, hosted by DPR...very nice...

walked around the grounds, beautifully lit at night...fountains, pools, palm court...really very nice...

back to my dinky hotel room for some sleep, the time difference and the day's travels were catching up with me...
