getting ready …

I am here in the US for a conference on Health, Healthcare Design 09. Pretty cool and hoping to rejuvinate my spirits and get back into the research and fundementals of architecture and health planning.

Anyway, today is Friday and we arrive early this morning - 1am to our hotel. We slept a bit and then had a packed day of taking it easy”. Part of the reason for my last post is that I am struggling a bit with the concept of this fake place and how there can be so many people here spending money and this is a small portion of the rich of the world. Imagine the poor and where they are sleeping tonight. So many people and so much money and just big big big.

Enjoy the photos as I work through this over stimulated environment.
