Cancun Dispatch 8/28

Many Meetings!

| September 2003

CANCUN CITY, MEXICO -- Two iced chocolate mochas and a comfy couch in this restaurant have made up for not having lunch until 6 pm. It's been a big day, and we've done a lot.

The convergence center is open! We arrive mid-morning after finishing our proposal for the eco-encampment. The landlord has workers still clearing out the space -- a big, three-story concrete building. Somehow in this work I seem to end up spending a lot of time in big, echoey concrete buildings -- but I'm grateful to have this one. The bottom level smells heavily of mold, but we have the third and fourth floors and access to the roof, which requires ducking through a small doorway and climbing an iron radio tower, which provides a broad view over much of downtown Cancun City. From here we also have a good view of the major roads, which those of us who have survived police raids appreciate.
