Note From Rick
Before the convention officially began, Richard was able to enjoy some time as a tourist, and he wrote briefly to share some of his impressions and photos of the Christmas Market in historic Toulouse.

November 26, 2016

Up late to get this short note to you: If you appreciate history, this is a place you may very well enjoy.

There are quite a few familiar faces, and some who have mentioned the site. "The Girls", they are!

Impossible attendance numbers, filling all buildings of a 7 building convention center. And so far... not an ugly moment to witness.

My host claims there will be 60,000 people to attend in two days!! And again, all well behaved and boisterously celebrating the 10th anniversary of this convention, the Toulouse Game Show.

It's all quite wonderful! A little on the exhausting side of things, but very terrific.
