   Then, at 10:00 am , the participants left the Vice-Provincial house to go to a "Buenos Aires" retreat house in Chinauta, a town about 120 kilometers south of Bogotá, with a pleasant climate and landscape; arriving at about midday. After settling into their rooms everyone gathered for a tasty lunch. At 15:30 the general program of the meeting was presented, followed by a round of presentation of each brother, highlighting the most significant of the training processes experienced, and each one’s expectations for the meeting.
