Live Blogging from Waldorf Astoria...

I'm at the corner of 53rd and Park. We're all sitting around wondering "Where's Hu?" and the only answer is "Hu Knows?". He was supposed to be here at 11am, but as of 4pm (when I finally showed up) he is still in transit, or maybe he's taking a nap somewhere.

In the meantime, the Chinese Foreign Minister (we suspect) decided to make a visit to the loyal Chinese demonstrators on the street. Little did he know there were plenty of Tibetans and Falun Gong waiting in the midst to make his press opportunity a bit unpleasant. Kusho-la, Tendor, and Matt were right at the front...see the link below to a quicktime movie (you may need to download quicktime here: http://www.apple.com/quicktime) that i just filmed of the encounter.

Click here for the Quicktime movie of "Chinese official press moment spoiled". Its 19MB so it may take a little while to download. You may want to save it to disk.

Hopefully, Hu will arrive soon. I may not be here to cover it, but there will be plenty of other folks around to tell the tale later...

    Haha, that was an awesome video! Good work! I loved seeing Kusho la and Tendor right up front chasing and yelling at the ambassador.
