NEPO House

Images from the NEPO 5k House show

Although the NEPO 5k was less about the destination and more about the journey, the NEPO House show was - in my opinion- a quiet punctuation mark. It asked you to take your time and slow down enough to let it in, to absorb it. Arguably, that was not an easy thing to do while there was so much going on outside. So I will walk you through the house after everyone has left (and we have cleaned up again). Enjoy the view.
