The internet in our hotel crapped out last night. By the time we got back from having dinner I was wiped out. I spent about an hour trying to get online and finally gave up. I’m trying to find 10 minutes to recap the preparation for this event, let alone the first 6 days. Since I didn’t do it last night, I’ve fallen behind by one more day. The lotus is doing well. I’ll update later tonight with the pictures I’ve taken over the past few days and I’ll add as much as I can before it starts to get serious.
