Arabia Mall, 7:45
I was the earliest riser this morning and crept out, passed the packed cases. Now I am outside Arabia, getting some fillings for my lunchtime sandwich. The Christmas decorations are interesting in the pre-dawn dark.
Most of the day will be spent listening and watching the Interactive Storytelling pitches. Seven pitches of thirty minutes make for a full brain. Afterwards Jutta, Robert and I will discuss them and decide on grades. Two groups will be asked to send in additional material to complete their pitches.
I will race through a final hillock of administration and backing up, before leaving the building at 15:35. At home there will be pre-departure tension before we pile into a taxi and head for the airport.
Hello airport, the journey begins.
