PAPA team inaugural meeting in Marrakesh!

The International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) congress, there in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, cialis sale provided an ideal opportunity for the PAPA team to officially toast the start of the PAPA project. PAPA delegates took a welcome break from the gaze of the North African sun to meet and discuss project activities for the coming months. The PAPA team gathered in an opulent dining room decorated with striking Arabic furnishings. Live Moroccan folk music opened the scene for a lively evening of PAPA-related conversation and discussion.
