Unsurprisingly, nobody stepped up and directed people to a definite place
to write down the rough price.

As for myself, the flight there and back will cost at about $400. That's
surprisingly cheap, so maybe I'm missing someting. I'm not sure if I'll
need sponsorship yet; I'll have to check that later on.
