The week was wonderful. To be taught by such an esteemed lecturer, have the services of a tour manager, visit such beautiful cities, be driven everywhere that was needed, have delicious meals and stay in nice hotels means that you have to pay a fair amount. And I feel the amount charged is a fair price.
