IMPRESSIONS by Marjorie Lev
3rd Igorot Cordillera BIMAAK Europe (ICBE) Consultation
5-8 May 2005
By Marjorie Lev
My impression of the conference was "No Comments". It was well presented, well organized and most they were united, always smiling and you can see them without pressure but a little bit nervous.
The wives of our gentlemen, husbands of our women and their children were all very active and you can see there eagerness to participate in everyway they could. You look around and see those happy faces of the children still unaware of what is going on, but with a deep sigh, you tell yourself wow! What an interesting second generation we will have.
More half breeds are coming .We have made in the Phil, in the USA. Europe, Canada, Australia, name it, we are international. Thank you! Very much to the first generation that through their patience and hard work some impossible were made possible.
I also thanked the stuff of Friedegg Hotel. They are very friendly, good service, good food, and the atmosphere is like you are home away from home.
But most I enjoyed the cultural night and the sightseeing.
The participation of the Swiss yodeler group, their big and heavy bells with them and their round red cheeks that reminds me of the people in the mountain trail, especially
In Sinipsip every time I go home to Sagada. (Joking)
To Bibak Switzerland, long live I salute each and every one of you, keep up the good work, and see you again in Australia next year.
