Okay, now I feel like I got to have some fun in Barcelona.
On Friday after the show was over, Greg and I headed out to the Speaker's Dinner.
The dinner was great - we sat in large group tables with waay too much food. All kinds of hot and cold tapas, and then a big buffet. This is really the only time you can get together with all these folks, and with the show over, they're actually fairly relaxed (there's a tension to anyone who has a session coming up).
The folks that organize Tech Ed hand out awards to the top ranked speakers, and called out Greg and I for a great effort at running Speaker Idol.
After dessert, Greg headed for the hotel... he's sensible that way.
I, however, stayed late. And when the dinner was breaking up, I went on to the nearby disco with a group of folks.
Around 2am I looked at my phone and realized I had to fly in five hours... ack!
I quickly said goodbye to everyone, ran out of the disco and jumped in a cab. I arrived back at the hotel a half hour later and packed my bag. And I realized there was really no point in going to bed... I took a shower, watched a little TV and went to the airport a bit early.
I don't remember much of the flight... changed planes in Frankfurt somehow and made it all the way home. Slept most of it.
What a great show... looking forward to it next year!
