And I'm hungry like the wolf

I apologize again to my dear darling bride, who's eager to read about what we did our Sunday in Mexico City. I'm eager to write it. But between work and getting ready for Motor City Fur[ry] Con this weekend I didn't have time to write today and so, one more photo dump. We're getting near the end of Anthrohio 2017!

Aftermath of the Raccoons and Procyonids SIG! The legendary trash bins tipped over and the candy revealed and much of it eaten. Also bunny_hugger checking notes for her Pinball SIG, I believe it was.

The long march to the Closing Ceremonies. Most of our day Sunday was taken up by the panels that we ran, or getting lunch, so there wasn't very much to photograph.

The last gathering in the main ballroom, which had also been the dance floor the previous nights of the convention.

And your basic shot of all the discussions at closing ceremonies. This might have been when they announced what the new hotel would be; I'm not positive.

Mostly this photograph is taken because I got a great, comedy-movie expression on the security guy's face there.

And it's over. Everyone helps out stacking chairs away and putting Anthrohio away and closing out the hotel.
