We felt very lucky to reconnect in Palencia with the organizers, as well as some of the speakers and delegates we had met at previous IUFRO conferences, and it was a pleasure to make some new friends, too. Having lunch with Mike Wingfield, Julio Casero and Jorge García before the congress began was a real privilege.

Rosa and Elena were at IUFRO Montesclaros in 2011 and it was great to see them again.

We were also blessed with a visit to our exhibition and our presentation to the Congress from Juan Barbé of Eskulan paper studio and Papyriphera who made a big detour from his trip Gijón to Bilbao and who had sent me the Mitsumata paper I printed along with Curly Dock paper we made together in Zizurkil in 2013. Always a pleasure to talk about fibres!

Juan Barbé points to the Mitsumata paper he sent for Bill to silkscreen with an image of the plant; the Curly Dock paper they made is below it.
