Transportation and Meals:

For Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, participants usually organize car pools to and from our home. However, for individual appointments on Thursday, you will need independent transportation, unless someone agrees to drive you each way. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as part of the tuition fee, we will provide lunch at our home. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know as soon as possible. For dinners, the group meets at various affordable restaurants, where individuals select and pay for their own meals. The group dinner on Thursday evening offers an opportunity for members to get acquainted and organize car pool plans. Anyone traveling with you is invited to join us for all dinners.
