I apologize for only letting you know now, but its just been a mad-house ever since I got back! The trip was as smooth as can be. We can consider ourselves lucky, seeing as we were able to get out of Colorado just before a blizzard hit. Now, back in SA, life continues. I want to thank each and everyone one involved in the planning of my time in Aspen. Especially you, Yetunde. It is often said, but this was indeed a life changing experience for which I will always be grateful. Thanks again. Until next time. Christiaan Jansen
