Internet at the Pepsi Center

There is no free wireless internet on the floor and in the press stands in the Pepsi Center… to my great surprise. So I went to the technology center asking about the access at my press seat, only to find out that it would cost me $850, plus $500 because it’d be a late order, to have the internet at my seat for the three days in the Pepsi Center. Seriously?! I decided to safe that money and to use the press filing area that has free wireless instead. The sole delegate for the Democrats Abroad from Germany told me that it was advertised before the convention started.

Schauspiel ohne gleichen: Auftakt des Parteitages der Demokraten

Diese Woche treffen sich die Demokraten in Denver, Colorado. In den letzten Tagen sind tausende Journalisten, Lobbyisten, Aktivisten und Politiker in die Stadt im Westen der USA geströmt. Die Einheimischen haben ihnen das Zentrum der Stadt großteils überlassen. Universitäten und Bürogebäude bleiben geschlossen. An jeder Ecke gibt es Obama und Convention Souvenirs, sowie Aktivisten, die unter anderem gegen den Krieg protestieren.

Countdown to the Convention

It’s just a few hours to go until the Democratic National Convention officially starts. I have been in town since the 21st. I have witnessed a transformation of the city in the last couple of days. Everybody is getting ready for the official opening of the convention Monday night 5 pm ET. The number of police cars and officers has substantially increased. Reports and politicians flocked to town and helicopters started flying regularly over the area.

Leaving DC for Denver

In a couple of hours, I will be leaving the DC area to fly to Denver. The adventure of the day will be, if I manage to get my connecting flight in Atlanta, where I have only 40 minutes to do so. In Denver, I have organized private housing… staying with a friend of my friend Leo. Tomorrow, the national convention of the College Democrats will start in Denver.
