The first day is AMAZING!

Our worlds were rocked, naturally.

We session, laugh and gasp in amazement. We attend classes to have our heads handed to us and then filled with the knowledge of how to take the heads of others. We sometimes find time to eat.
We’re not quite halfway through.
Time to head to to the Precursor Suite. We’ll let you know what happens tomorrow. In the mean time, take a look at this video of Allan Ackerman in the hotel lounge:
