Ricardo Calvo was instrumental in getting us invitations to the IGK Symposium that took place in Amsterdam at the end of November, 2001 at the Max Euwe Centrum. Because he could not attend, I read a paper prepared by Dr. Louis Cazaux to the assembled group.
Goddesschess did a big production - a 200 page spiral bound booklet containing original research by Don, Isis and I. We brought 30 copies with us, ran out and had 30 more made, and still there weren't enough! We spent six days in Amsterdam and had plenty of time for sight-seeing. This is a shot of Don with Michelle (Isis' daughter), taken outside Madame Taussaud's Wax Museum. Michelle (aged 12 in this photo) is now a lovely young lady who will graduate from high school in June, going on to college in the fall. How quickly time passes.
