-got in late last night, took ~20 hours to get here (KLM via Amsterdam)
-Goldman was right about Melatonin - it's how to deal with jetlag
-spent a while this morning chatting with Ahmad Al-Rikabi, who started Radio Dijla in Iraq. He's got some fascinating stories (and hopefully he'll be blogging them soon).
-I need to read Salam Pax's book
-chatted with Gordon Robison, proprietor of mideastanalysis.com
-Internet access in the hotel is ridiculously expensive, and they only have wifi in the Business Center. WiFi needs to be everywhere, and free.
-no problems getting to Flickr, but perhaps the filtering doesn't affect the hotel?
