As the competition has finally expired, this is the highest time to sum up our thoughts and fresh memories and wrap up.
We are back home, Easter is over. This is a time to get back to mundane rigors. It is not easy though. I believe that all of Vis participants are now at least partly affected by the Vis Disease. It is sad to come back to the reality, learning by heart, sitting on classes etc. But! (there is always some but) But it shows only how fun it was during last six months. Yes, I don’t need to rephrase myself or I did not misspell anything. It was a really good fun to work hard, study, train, listen to wiser people, search through the whole library and so on. This is a pleasure and a great intellectual and educational experience. It takes long to understand what prof. Eric Bergsten meant saying “it is not a competition, it is rather an educational experience”. We are back home with a strong feeling, not that we defeated someone, not that we were defeated by others, but with the feeling that we come back stronger ourselves. We are richer intellectually, we are more self confident, we have more friends and we are open minded. We experienced something what might be called the most successful week of our student’s educational life. We paid for it with a precious thing – our time and persistence. It was worth it.
It wouldn’t be possible if not the good people around us. That is why we would like to thank to those who worked with us, and those who supported us in any other manner.
In the first place, we would like to thank:
