Like a kid on Christmas morning – or a global poverty advocate with accreditation to the G20 Summit – I was up early to start the day. Only 2,000 people are allowed into this summit, and we’ve been told that the 50 bloggers of the G20Voice project are the only members of civil society who were allowed accreditation. Below a photo journey of my way in.
I took this during my 5:30 am walk to the Tube -
which opened 6 minutes after I arrived.
I arrived at the proper station by sunrise for the first of four accreditation/passport checks.
Then we boarded the first of 2 shuttle buses.
Where we received our photo badges. (Somehow my passport ID was one number off in their records, but the woman behind the desk remembered my name from the list of bloggers she’d received, so I got in fine.)
We went through security.
Onto a “clean” bus.
And then into the Media Centre for the 2009 London G20 Summit.
