The IAOC has drafted a letter to the mayor, which will be delivered to  
the vice-mayor tomorrow. I want to take an opportunity to thank you  
and your team personally for your involvement in hosting the IETF, and  
for the very fine event that it has been.

I sent a note to the NOC team earlier in the week. We invariably seem  
to have issues in the network, which is a little embarrassing given  
that we are a networking organization - it's the cobbler's shoes that  
pinch. Per the measurements I have made this week, the network has  
been among the most stable, predictable, and reliable among IETF  
meetings in my memory, and my memory goes back almost to the founding  
of WIDE.

The city is gorgeous. We have been to some nice places - I like  
Prague, the museum in Paris is wonderful, Amsterdam is full of life.  
But Hiroshima, in my estimation, ranks among the most beautiful and  
friendly cities we have visited. What other city has changed its  
annual program just because we came? How many are as pleasant and safe?

The hotels have been comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, and  
the restaurants inexpensive and good.

I am aware, as you are, that this was a diving catch on your part. You  
and the people of Japan have been good friends to the IETF, over and  
above the call of duty.

Thank you, good friend. We are in your debt.
