You can find the set of origami convention photos here (although they will take a while to finish uploading.) We had a wonderful time in Italy and the Netherlands. Other than my laptop being destroyed, it was all really great! A huge thanks to Patrizia Parigi for all the assistance she gave us in Firenze and in Verbania- there’s …
