I got up this morning feeling decidedly not good and went to the first talks in the morning but missed much of the day today because I was feeling like shit and could not even make it to the dinner tonight which I am most unpleased about. There is apparently a presentation by Aboriginal artists and performance artists that should be good. Being sick in a hotel room on the far side of the world is most sad. The fabulous dinner is being held at the museum of modern art here and I really wanted to go to see the presentations and the art, but had to appease my hunger with a half-assed $28.00 (AUS) room service sandwich and a game of rugby on TV. I am not happy right now.
