It's early morning in Bethlehem (7:30 am, quite an unusual hour for me to be up at) and the city is slowly but noisily waking up to the day. Both Han and I are typing away at our computers
in the hotel lobby although it's before coffee and barely after sunrise. Given the name of our hotel (Casa Nova), we might as well have been in the East Village, or Las Vegas.
But we're looking forward to the conference, which starts at 8:30am. Check out daily updates about the conference at the blog that Han has made (www.celebratingnv.blogspot.com
