So the whole "we're becoming parents in an hour!" bit was, well, a load of hooey. Turns out, there's a bit of a situation here, where students are protesting in the streets in front of government buildings--ie, in front of our hotel. Soooo, we were told to stay in our rooms as a "big parade was going by" (hmmm) and we will try to become parents tomorrow, or the next day.
We are perfectly safe, just incredibly disappointed by the day's events. We were totally ready, had everything set out as best we could, and got to call literally as we were walking out the door to meet our son. And, looking out into the streets, there really isn't any way it could have happened. So, we try again tomorrow.
We stayed in, watched HBO movies, ate some pretty darned good room service, and went to bed.
