CerOrganic ToT School - The end

... at least for me, as I had to depart on Friday afternoon so I was not able to attend the social event on Friday evening nor the presentations by the trainees on Saturday. I trust that everything went fine during the last day of the training.

However, I faced some difficulties getting back home on Friday. My flight departing at 20.05 from Chania airport was cancelled due to severe weather (in fact the plane coming from Athens was unable to land in Chania airport due to the storm so it returned to Athens!). We were informed about that after we had checked in and waiting at the gate, where I had the chance to capture a view of the rain with my digital camera.


It was a good thing that a larger plane was arranged to come at the next flight (22.35) and pick all of us who decided not to cancel our tickets. However, this delay gave me the chance to prepare a draft report about the school and also prepare some emails to be sent later (there was no Wi-Fi connection at Chania airport). I then realized that during the training I had capture footage of about 25GB in low-res (640x480 due to the limitation of storage - it would have been more than 100GB if I shot @ 1280x720, 30 fps as I originally intended to...). I will try to make a good use of it (e.g. upload each presentation in the corresponding course in MOLE platform) but it I suppose that the editing will take much time and I cannot afford to spend too much on that task...

I got back in Athens at about 23.30 (there was a small delay in the flight) so I had to reschedule my plans (there was no suburban train nor metro at that time). Better late than never, as they say...
