Today was the first day of the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Summit. Before everything kicked off we went for a walk around Seattle.
We found this really cool magic shop. Check out the Elvis Zoltar inside...
I managed to blag a visit to Alan's room. His hotel room is rather high, with some nice views.

Gathering for the opening session. I've never been to one of these before, but the thing that struck me was just how many MVPs there are. This is a big affair. And there are people from all over the world.
This was the gathering before we went in for dinner.
The food, and the company, was excellent. On the way out I grabbed a picture of the view from the conference centre.
