San Juan is out there somewhere

As is usual for business travel, being here isn't, for the most part, like being here so much as like being in a hotel somewhere. The hotel is under construction, and there are a number of niggly problems with it, most particularly the fact that for the first couple of days, my keycards mostly didn't work, which led to a lot of time going back and forth from the front desk, much to my frustration, since meeting days are usually tightly scheduled and losting half of my free time in a given span makes me cranky.

On the bright side, I discovered last night that the hotel has a sauna! Now, if all of the meetings were outside in the beautiful 85 degree weather, this would be less exciting, but since we're in a 60 degree ballroom, the thought of a sauna this afternoon is utterly delightful.

I'm looking forward to the meeting being done (though that's premature, since we've got sessions all day today and all morning tomorrow) so I can actually be here. Then, I'll have a froofy drink on the beach and quit my bitching.
