Longest Legislations in AIESEC Global Plenary...?

Its 6:30 AM in Cairo and the global plenary of AIESEC just passed the last motion of closing the legislation :)

10 hrs of legislation! What a night...Some big steps taken for moving AIESEC forward!

Next: AI VP announcements at the beach with the sun rising...Cannot wait!

3:55 AM in Cairo...

Legislation at IPM still continues. Its almost 7,5 hrs - it started at 20 30 local time here.

On another note :), I stumbled upon a page which talks about some learning points of Dave Barry, a humor columnist whose work appeared in more than 500 newspapers in the US and abroad.

One of them is:
If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

11:00 PM and Cairo is buzzing!

A lot has happened since my arrival in Cairo on the 13th night. Will summarize in few quick lines...

* Excellent luxurious stay at the Intercontinental five star hotel - pimpin food, rooms - though for 1 day. Had mouth watering real fresh mango juice! Had atleast 6 glasses today!
* AIESEC Symposium on Activating talent in the Middle East just got over 2 hours back - very well appreciated and it seems people loved it. Got to meet excellent people, and some really interesting thoughts about middle east youth and their aspirations, thoughts on career etc.
* Just arrived at the pre meeting site and straight after dropping my luggage, i am at this sheesha place - Sheesha in Egypt! Heaven... plus wireless going crazy! and even insane is my inbox! What a long day and a perfect ending...:)
* Tomorrow is Advisory Council meeting and GN pre-meetings start! Its going so fast...
