Conference Kick Off Hangzhou, Monday 8 November 2010
The Conference didn’t actually open until the next day, Sunday. I got up early andwalked around the grounds of the Zhejiang Xizi Hotel. It was here in 2002,accompanying Kofi on a visit, that I fell in love with West Lake and Hangzhou. Maoloved it too; he came to this hotel 27 times.Guests are put up inVillas likethis.The lake wrapsaround thegrounds. Themodern citycenter is theskyline in thedistance.
