Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting Notes

The owners of Tango Zulu Imports are in Omaha, Nebraska attending one of the largest capitalist conventions - the annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway.

We arrived at Omaha and took a quick nap before heading out to the cocktail reception at Borsheims. The scene at Borsheims, which is a Berkshire holding, was not unlike that of a popular concert, except that the audience was comprised of people of all ages and different walks of lives. The credential hanging around our necks served as the secret password into the building, and fighting against the dense crowd, we finally made it into the center of the building and got us couple of drinks. Borhsheims was shoulder to shoulder with drink-toting shareholders ogling the jewelry. As we were admiring a diamond ring for $15,000, someone walked up next to us and asked where the jewelry above one million dollars are sold. What is money after all, hey? We settled for free drinks and lots of meatballs.

We are looking forward to the annual meeting tomorrow, when the Oracle of Omaha will talk about how Berkshire fared last year and impart his wisdom. All in all, it's been a good day.
