Hola, Norma!I just wanted to thank you so so much for arranging/leading the photography workshop in Oaxaca. I feel that, with the expert instruction of Sam and Tom [Robbins], I was able to improve my photography skills greatly throughout the course of the workshop.Also, the subjects we were able to shoot thanks to your arrangements (markets, potters, weavers, etc) were the most interesting I have ever shot (and probably ever will shoot!).I have never been as happy as I was during our stay in Teotitlan del Valle, and I feel as though this trip really opened my eyes to the world. I now understand what Sam meant when she said that Teotitlan is a place that really gets under your skin.I hope I can return to Teotitlan sometime in the very near future (I miss it so much… who knew you could fall in love with a place?).Thank you so much again for making this experience possible… I cannot express my gratitude enough!Thanks,Kellie Fitzgerald, Columbus, OhioJuly 11, 2011
