     Colour of eyes and hair and language are different but for us, there was a common theme, Go, which has a power to unite as one overcoming all the differencies. What I experienced at IAPGC was the most fortunate thing in my life.

     The IAPGC was such a wonderful experience for me, and I was grateful that I had the opportunity to play there. It was a pity that we didn't win (came second), but I was still happy with the overall experience. Also, the fact that my mother accompanied me to the event (because I was 13 years old) helped me relax and enjoy the trip.

     The atmosphere between participants was very warm although battles on Go boards were fierce. It was an extraordinary experience to play with Go players from all over the world with their unique play technics, tactics and understanding of the game. Special event with national costume gave opportunity to learn more about other cultures which opened window to the closer international friendship.

     We really like the game but the problem is that there is no Go equipment here in Madagascar. So I made some Go equipment so that I can play with my friend.
