Still thinking? Read part 3 of a report from Chris Bak (England).


I attended the closing ceremony on the same day and received first place in the under 2000 category! Not only was I handed an envelope, but a ceremonial rose. I wasn’t sure what to do with the flower; it certainly doesn’t belong in a suitcase!
