As things settle down a little, we're grabbing this opportunity to introduce our recent Grillust™ recruits (all 21) to all our loyal followers on the world wide inter-web.

What conclusions can we make...
Well, we can categorically state that we really are a truly 'global' course, with all four cardinal compass directions covered: N - Helsinki (Finland); S - Durban (South Africa); E - Hong Kong (China); W - Tampa (USofA).
We also found out that the people of 'God's own county' (Yorkshire) can get along with Lancastrians, Grillust™is still 'massive' in Salford (and Spain) and Nottingham is North of Leicester.
Once the students had been arranged and catalogued, we officially 'broke the ice' using our very own ancient, top-secret recipe that has strangers talking to one another almost instantaneously. See below if you don't believe us:

Finally, it was time to unleash our students onto the tranquil streets of Carlisle with our very own digital 'treasure hunt'. The ensuing chaos is graphically pictured below:
PS. It really was a fun week and we can state with confidence that they really are lovely people.
