"Cuban time" jokes at Mayor's Conference

Random Pixels has a network of correspondents that feed us news from all over the world.

OK, not really.

But we do have correspondent covering the mayor's conference at the Intercontinental Hotel this week.

Oops! Wrong again.

Seriously, I do have a friend who's there on business and provides me with these choice tidbits:

  • At 2:30 p.m., there's a workshop on digital literacy. Oddly, there is no free wi-fi at the hotel, public or otherwise, and the mayors conference is not providing any internet access to attendees or the press. So I have had to spend $22 to connect for two days.

  • Press conference with all the mayors was held at noon.
    Mayor Diaz was 10 minutes late. "All the other mayors are joking about 'Cuban time'," whispered a mortified Miami city hall insider.
