ISTM 11 – day 2

May 26th, 2009 2 comments

It is a nice 15 minute walk from my hotel to the conference center. The crowds were just starting this morning when I strolled along at 0730; students, workers, shoppers all bustling along the sidewalks and filling the trams. The center is on the Pest side of the river, more cars, fewer people early in the morning in this high tech IT area of business filling the neighboring buildings.

I will spare you the 200+ pictures that I took during the day. This particular conference doesn’t publish either the lectures or provide much in the way of notes. Leads to a fair number of us using cameras during the presentations for screen capture….

Cat provides another way of looking at the issue of attendance/non attendance at weddings.  Of course, her rants are always interesting and well expressed. My eldest is certainly a capable, competent and self-assured young woman. She is her own person and makes good choices for herself and her husband.

As there were no attendants and certainly no one “giving” her away, I think that a lot of issues were avoided. Their cakes were non-traditional and there were no toasts.  She was speaking to me on Saturday evening. Hopefully that will continue.

and will provide you a better picture tomorrow when it is light so that you can see details better (I did all those bobbles on the edge…..).  I am planning on getting up early in the morning to go hunting with the camera before the meeting.
