Well, here I am, safely ensconced in the Holiday Inn, Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina for the MIE2009 (www.mie2009.org) conference. It looks like being another hot and humid day here. After a long day of travel yesterday, including a 5 hours wait between planes at Munich airport, finally got here last night. The pick-up arrangements were excellent (many thanks to Promo Tours for their excellent work – http://www.promotours.ba/), and so it was a quick trip from Sarajevo airport to the hotel.

The EFMI (www.efmi.org) Council meets all day today (after the EFMI Board meeting yesterday) – those of us here already and not involved will be taking the opportunity for tourism today and tomorrow. I have never been to Sarajevo before, so I am looking forward to seeing some of it – will post photos later.

Various other people will be reporting from MIE2009 (mainly tweeting, I think) – so, watch out for @CiscoGIII, @luisluque, @omowizard – or search Twitter with #MIE09

OK, enough sitting in the hotel over a laptop – off to see the sights.

UPDATE, 17:15hrs – after a wander round the old town, lunch (cevapi with onions – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%86evap%C4%8Di%C4%87i), turkish coffee and lemonade, and conference registration, we had a beer and chat with Ed Hammond at the conference hotel.

Some photos area at http://picasaweb.google.com/peterjmurray/MIE2009Sarajevo where more will be added later. Now the hard choices – where to have dinner; there seem to be plenty of choices.
