Day 1: 2008 AIDS Conference

A happy reunion! Leah, Jonah and me!

Jonah, Shawn and I just returned to our hotel after a full day in the Global Village at the 2008 AIDS Conference. My husband and I were just commenting that we have never experienced a more intense or stimulating day.

There were thousands of people swarming in the village and dozens of zones: women's networking (where World Pulse is!), intrafaith, youth, sex workers, gay and lesbian, asian, deaf and disabilities, to name a few. There were dozens of impromptu sessions of drumming and dancing and celebration of the human spirit. There was a main stages that held various outrageous and poignant skits. There was a community space that we didn't get to. And a marketplace. And an art exhibit. It was never quiet and it was never dull.

I am attending this conference with Anne-christine d-Adesky ( and Leah Okeyo ( We had planned to register courageous women and men leading the charge against HIV and AIDS on PulseWire, but the Internet was down for most of the day. I just got word that right as Shawn, Jonah and I were leaving, the Internet came back and Anne-c and Leah registered 6 new members in one hour!

If you found your way to this entry, I hope you will also find your way to friending our newest community members!

Jonah was the hit of the zone.
Look at all these people we could have signed up!
And more!
