    Best experience at UWCD

    Meeting many different people, sharing experiences and looking for new ways of being!

    We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.

    - T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
