17th ISMS: social events (photo series)

  • A photo impression of the social events at the 2008 ISMS Congress. They featured a welcome cocktail party at The Westin, a Cape Malay street party at Oude Libertas and lunch at Blaauwklippen wine estate. The accompanying persons programme offered trips to Cape Point and Table Mountain, so there's also some pictures of the beautiful area here (25 pictures).
