As we stepped out of our hotel today on the way to the opening meeting of CM2007 (“Campus Mission 2007”) we got an idea how big it really is. We are a five minute walk and three stops on the subway from the convention center, yet there were conference volunteers directing people just outside our hotel! We traveled in a pack to the convention hall.
One of the really fun things has been seeing so many friends here. Two of my neighbors are here (from next door and across the street) as well as many others from Orlando. But at the subway stop I ran into a bunch of friends from Budapest that I had not seen since we left there a year ago. That was a breath of fresh air. And then tonight my brother arrived. So this should be a fun few days for that reason alone.
