Day 1 of the WSF.
I arrived in beautiful Budapest yesterday morning and met fellow WAYS members at the hotel we are staying at. It was really good to meet people in the flesh that I had only 'spoken' to via email. I also met an old friend, Mo Matemedi, whom I had last seen in 2007 in Lyon. As usual it was a late night, as one would expect when a diverse group of people come together.
Today I am sitting in the first plenary, listening to speeches. Waiting to hear what the UN Secretary General has to say.
