The Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting is a financial pilgrimage.
Investors from around the world come to Omaha, Nebraska to hear Berkshire CEO Warren Buffett and his vice chairman Charlie Munger take questions from journalists, analysts, and shareholders for seven hours.
And the lines for getting in to see the two speak starts hours before the sun begins to rise in Omaha.
We went to the Berkshire annual meeting this year and got the full shareholder experience.
From the grand arrival of CEOs, to the stampede for seats, to the brief moment when you can almost reach out and grab him, it is quite a day.
