Today I'm back at the Hotel Tucson City Center to carry on to see the people and rocks that I missed on the first day. For those of you suffering from sticker shock after yesterday's report today may be more of a relief. It's 9am now and the show proper doesn't officially open till ten so I'll wander for a while and see what I can see...
