Arrival and bewilderment

I crashed into bed last night at the hostel in Rio after 20ish hours of travel, having borrowed a pj shirt from a friend since my bag was yet to arrive (didn't make it onto my second plane). I've spent today at the Rio+20 conference centre, wandering around and trying to work out what i want to do with my time. The jetlag haze is at its height right now (I hope) and I look forward to being coherent in the coming days. In the meantime, I hope to develop my ability to introduce myself to the people sitting near me and become better at that mysterious ''networking' thing we are meant to do in our lives. I do have my cards ready to; now I just need to figure out why someone would want one! Dr Al-daghistani, a town planner for Bahgdad, now has one, as does Dr Mogo of the Nigerian Maritime Admin and Safety Agency. What next??
