Loncon3 -- Worldcon Day 1
The journey down to London was fine and I found my way to the LSE Bankside Hall of residence without any problems. I checked in, freshened up and then travelled via Tube and DLR (Docklands Light Railway) to the Excel Exhibition Centre where the convention is being held.

It is huuuuuuge!

Lots of people. Immense dealers' room. A plethora of panels to attend.

So far I have seen and chatted to several old friends and failed to find others. I ate a chicken burger because I hadn't eaten since breakfast. I attended an interesting panel on languages, which would have been even more interesting if the moderator hadn't been quite so rigid in his moderation and let the discussion flow more naturally. But it was fine and afterwards I chatted to more old friends before calling it a day and heading back to my room for the night.

I'll be doing lunch with friends, but certainly around this pm. Not sure where - fan village or food hall area I expect - but hanging with Jacey, Tina, John etc.

I once gave a talk at Excel and got lost just trying to find the room!
