The 2016 Conference in Aarhus is over. It was a wonderful occasion, which was enjoyed by everyone. Friday evening we met in the breakfast area, where we had a welcome drink and a very interesting talk on Aarhus as City of Culture in 2017. Afterwards people drifted off in groups for dinner at some of the many restaurants in the area. Saturday morning, after breakfast, we set off for Den Gamle By, a museum consisting of a collection of old houses, which have been moved here from all over the country. Our excellent guide, Jorgen, gave us lots of interesting information. From there we walked to the Aros museum, where we had lunch, and some then went with Jorgen to Aarhus Cathedral. In the evening we went to Restaurant Mellemrum for an excellent dinner and great company. Sunday we had to ourselves till 4.30, when we had our AGM. Afterwards people again drifted off in groups for a last lovely meal in Aarhus. Monday morning it was time for goodbyes. I would like to say thank you to everyone who came for helping to make this trip such a great success. Please let us have any photos you would like us to post on our FB page. ... See MoreSee Less
