In the meantime, let’s take a trip with her. 

This is Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, our tour guide.

Thursday, June 6th – 4pm last minute prepping for the trip to Mexico City.

Bags packed: clothes and yes, paper files. I'm old fashioned like that.

Taking the red eye to Mexico City. Leaves at 12:45 am Friday, June 7th.

Arrive Mexico City bleary-eyed at 4:50 am.

Friday June 7th – After a nap, a makeup artist from our sister network, Telemundo, arrives to do my hair and makeup for the Carlos Slim interview.

Later at Slim's office, you can see what a good job she's done.

June 7th 5pm – Mr. Slim is always on time.

My fourth interview with Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. A tough interview. Especially, when raising criticisms of his dominance of the Mexican telecom market. For every stat you have, he has 10.

Saturday Morning June 8th – We can't sleep in because a little known band from the UK - One Direction - is staying at the same hotel. Thousands of screaming tweens are out front. And all over the hotel too.

Saturday June 8th – All day transcribing the Slim interview. That tiny little machine next to me is a playback deck.

Saturday June 8th late afternoon – Site survey at 3M's Mexico City Innovation centre.

Sunday June 9th – The whole day spent writing. My only excitement, Josh the Drummer of One Direction gets mobbed at the breakfast buffet.

Monday, June 10th – 2:45am wakeup call.

Monday, June 10th – 5:30am live from 3M's Innovation centre. Chair is taped to plexiglass and designed to show off how strong the adhesive is.

Monday, June 10th – 6:30am live with 3M CEO Inge Thulin. You have no idea the technical hoops the team jumped through to make this happen.

My last 3M live shot...I drop my phone in 3M's fluid, on purpose. Now time to rest up for tomorrow...full day of live shots to release the Carlos Slim interview.

Now let's follow another CNBC reporter around for a day...
