ITQ goes to the G20: And amazingly, she only gets lost once on her way to the hotel!

Of course, it was within two stations of her ultimate destination, and technically, she did it twice, but still.

Anyway, the liveblogger has landed, although I’m not sure how much liveblogging will be done today, since I’m spending most of it in a pre-summit briefing hosted by G20 Voice (provided I can find *that*, of course). I’ll definitely post an update on my pre-adventures sometime later today, but at the moment, internet access is a bit dodgy; I’m actually sending this post as an email to one of my fabulous colleagues back home.

Flight report: Middle seat. What more is there to say, really? Thank goodness there’s Sugar Free Red Bull available just steps from the baggage claim at Heathrow, that’s what. As you can imagine, I didn’t get much sleep, so I’m not sure how much of today’s session will penetrate my jetlagged brain, but I’ll do my best to take notes for y’all. Tomorrow, of course, is the conference itself, and the security clearance festivities get underway at the crack of 6am, but I’m sure I’ll find a way to get online between now and then with a lookahead report. Or more stories of getting lost in the tubes, depending on how today unfolds. Wish me luck – and, if you’re feeling especially benevolent, a sudden burst of mad navigational skills too.
