First round table. Wojciech Mirski makes a very interresting lecture on medical issues relative to long flights. Read a condensed report on his lecture here:
Eulogogy to Earthriounders Co-founder Hans Gutmann bt Heinrich Cordes and Claude Meunier.
We then when for an airboat ride on a huge lake of fresh water. High speed on these flat bottom airboat equiped with very powerfull engine. We saw a few aligators and a lot of of wild life. Lunch at the Cherry Pocket.
We finished the day with another round table and...
Sergey Terekhin invited the Earthrounders to meet again in Russia in 2014, either in Saint Pretesburg or in Anapa on the Black Sea.
Also Wei Chen invited us to Macau also in 2014 during the biannual airshow there.
It is the first time that the Earthrounders had 2 invitations. Decision on where to go could not be finalised on the spot but negociations will take place in the very near future. Both venues are very interseting.
