The eight remaining team members to arrive were super excited to get to HoteL Cernigov to meet up with Olle, Ian, Mary and Heather as we missed them soooooooo much. However, a compulsory Maccas stop on the way to Hradec Kralove was obviously required.
In the pre-reunion excitement Nicola, Lani, Michele and Jacqui found a mirror that showed us our greatest desire - to be Euro tanned. (Jacqui insisted on at least one Harry Potter reference)
Matt and Heather discovered that from the ninth floor we could easily plummet to our deaths - but with big smiles. Also that there is plenty of opportunity for aerodynamic testing of various objects.
Our most recent team members to arrive struggled through our first team meeting (located in Valerie's room - on the one condition that there would be "no bums in Valerie's face space"). Nonetheless, team bonding ensued. Those who managed stay awake also got into improving our skills with Roch's help.
The first day ended with a beautiful sunset over the Clock Tower. We're all looking forward to more of the lovely Czech weather.
