This is a paid gig, so they're paying for everything. That included a car from the airport to the hotel. I'm still a bit amused by the treatment I get on this kind of thing: they treat me like I'm someone really important. No, I don't get the big-name star treatment, with people standing by to ensure my every whim is satisfied, but it's still more than I usually get when I travel on business.
The trade name for folks like me - the ones in front of the camera - is "talent". I have a hard time thinking of myself that way, but I'm keeping my mouth shut about it.
