There really wasn’t a day 5, but most folks were eager to do one last gamala taki session after breakfast. Karl was reluctant to do it because it was so darn cold! The weather had really turned. But the enthusiasm of the people won over, and it turned out to be one of the most physical gamala taki sessions I can remember, with lots of dancing and singing. We talked about the possibility of future CMS sessions, said our goodbyes, and hit the road. It was an extraordinary week folks. Extraordinary.
