Ljubljana, Slovenia: MICY Colloquium October 14th-18th 2009

The 2nd Motivation for Innovation and Creativity of Youth (MICY)  international colloquium held in Ljubljana, Slovenia was truly outstanding.  It was an absolute pleasure to walk the scenic streets of Ljubljana as take in the historic pastel architecture, alpine surroundings, and rich culture which is mostly unaffected by tourists.  However, the best part of the trip was the people I connected with from Europe and around the world.  Miss you all so much,
