The conference thus far has been a learning experience both through the conference presentations but also the people I have met around tables enjoying food and drink during meal breaks. I'm about to take a walk because we have a two hour lunch break and I am a fast eater. But I wanted to leave just a couple of photographs from our carbalicious breakfast (the baked goods were delicious but I was left longing for some protein) as well as our wine and small plates lunch (small plates do add up... although I wish they added up to slightly more).
