It was interesting and pleasing to meet other people at a similar stage in their studies. They were a friendly group and the evening meal was especially enjoyable (apart from being nominated to receive money and pay the bill, which I accept as revenge for my abundance of cheese jokes!).
The following day was equally enjoyable. A completely vegetarian lunch was very compatible with my needs! The talks were thought-provoking, which allowed me to reflect on my own project still further.
