Review 2004

The Mobile Academy: Berlin 2004 hosted 130 participants from 46 countries. We had 28 presentations and 30 city tours, we heard 22 originally composed love songs in this period.

We had a different national meal every night, we all communicated in broken English and asked ourselves the question: What kind of language was it (and what did it sound like) that our colleagues spoke before the tower of Babel fell and we were separated from each other once and for all?
