We met altogether in plenary sessions during the day. Here is Al Akimoff sharing some stories with us - he has been working in the Central/Eastern European region for over 40 years!
In the afternoons we met in our "regions" (Western, Central, Northern and Eastern), so I was with the guys from the Central European region. There were 8 of us and on the first night after our meeting ended we went out for dinner in a traditional restaurant:

The acoustics were amazing, but it didn't make for good photos inside... I did get some photos of the crosses:
