      I found the experience unique and everything went very well (meeting point, communication). It was exciting, educational and fun. Unfortunately I am still waiting for the promised photos. Therefore a "good".

      Excellent opportunity to learn sitting next to a master in a small group situation. He was able to teach to our interest and also to our ability. I learnt so much, coming away feeling inspired and grateful for the privilege of the opportunity provided.
