This hotel where the conference is happening is one of the strangest buildings I have ever encountered. For starters, it is a hotel, convention center, shopping mall and General Motors International Headquarters all mushed into one building. Trying to find my way from the poster session to the cafe I find myself in a completely abandoned display hall with spot-lights pointed at GM's 2010 lineup of cars and trucks. This room is carpeted, but the carpet is asphalt colored. I eventually find my way back to the hotel lobby and ask for directions, and am told that there is no connection from the third floor where I am to the second floor where the cafe is. I need to take the elevator to the first floor, cross into the GM headquarters, take the escalator up one flight then cross back into the hotel, turn left at the CVS and a right past the bathrooms. All this while I can see the cafe from where I am standing.

"You can't get there from here."
"But I'm looking for the same old place."
"Oh, you mean the old same place. It's out back, here's the key."
