The rest of my day was spent wandering, skyping my boys (loved loved loved seeing AND hearing them), and in a tour with the International Group. When someone hears a familiar accent, whether German, American, or French, they glom onto that person. The tour left much to be desired, but much of that is because I had walked around enough to be familiar with the city and sights. There are an amazing range of countries and nationalities here. The three folks I have met are American, but live in Germany, Finland, and Iraq. Tomorrow the conference begins in earnest, so there will be more to report tomorrow night.
