IAML Riga Congress Diary #4: An accompanying person (New Zealand)

This entry is by Sara Brown (New Zealand), an accompanying person at the 2017 Congress in Riga:  Riga and the IAML Congress were a real treat for me. I was there as an ‘accompanying person’ with my partner, Rhys (thanks to Roger Flury and David Vine for the image of carrying around a piano, ready to play at a moment’s notice…). Getting to Riga was an adventure as the distance from Dunedin, New Zealand to Riga is about 17405 km in a straight line according to Google Maps.
