Smiley faceEight days? With so many discoveries and experiences at every "bamboo node," I forgot to count the days. Interesting, exciting, exhausting. Every day was a "pliant like bamboo" movement from theory to practice, from lecture to workshop, from ideal to real. But more than the magic of bamboo, it was the contagion of interacting with people in love with bamboo that spelled the difference.
