This is at just past 9:00, and there is a line up at the gate, for people needing to get their passes. Many did get their pass on Saturday or Sunday, which helps, but many come on Monday, the start of the CSW.
There is always great debate as what to attend = do i go to the opening ceremony or to the Conversation Circle on Human Rights? It is overwhelming for first timers - there are over 6,500 delegates, and many events - the official events, the side events, the parallel events - all are interesting, and on relevant topics. Some of the locations will require a bit of a walk, But today is quite warm and sunny, so that will not be a problem.
Tomorrow is the NCWC event, and several of us will be supporting the workshop. I'm going to work on my presentation today, if I have time! Tonight is the Reception hosted by the Canadian Mission.
