been at this UN thing all week. strange mix of folk - Robert Mugabe, Kofi Annan, the ever excellent Nic Negroponte from MIT with his $100 clockwork laptop, and a bucketload of randoms doing a lot of headshaking, hand-wringing and little else. sounds like a club i used to go to.
bizarrely, i have just met Gilberto Gil, and what a very nice man he was. sadly, my camera is at the hotel.
