3rd Igorot Cordillera BIMAAK Europe (ICBE) Consultation
5-8 May 2005
by Dominga Webber
Just arrived from Switzerland to attend the 3rd Igorot Cordillera BIMAAK Europe Consultation and I wished I am still there. The consultation was Hosted by BIBAK Switzerland and the venue was held in Hotel Friedegg, Aeschi (May 5-8, 2005).
I am just about to leave for work so I just want to congratulate the BIBAK Switzerland team for a job well done. I salute you all for all your hard work and efforts and for making us so welcome, specially to Lolit and Juerg, Claire and Martin, Violeta, Fred and all the others involved in the planning for making this event very memorable. Especially the gala night which I think is exceptionally unique. The very supportive talk of the ambassador followed by the exceptional presentation of the yoddelers of the Swiss Alps made this consultation very unique and unforgettable. I would say this must be the best yet ICBE consultation if not the noisiest that I have attended. The intercultural exchanges of the Igorots and Swiss through music and dances were a true example of East and West integration.
I will report my account of the consultation later, but I just have to say THANK YOU!!!!!!! BIBAK SWISS FOR A JOB WELL DONE. Your hard work and effort is greatly appreciated.
And Thank you fellow delegates for the fellowship of sharing and exchanging your ideas and your wisdom which we hope to have gained knowledge and better understanding of our culture and the friendship which we will treasure and the laughter which we hope to share again next time we meet.
"CONGRATULATIONS BIBAK SWITZERLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU."
