In the morning, I left Smart at my parents’ so that Katya can drive it with Maya-san on.
I said a quick good-by to Maya-san not to make her too upset.
After arriving in Kofu by train, I went to the institute by mini. I met teachers and students, discussed about the schedules, loaded stuffs on cars, and left Kofu.
After arriving at a hotel, we prepared rooms for seminars.
People started arriving at 5 PM. We helped them registered.
Meanwhile, the party was being prepared.
The welcome party started at 7 PM, which I chaired. It continued till 9 PM. I think people enjoyed it very much.
The committee members got together to confirm what to do tomorrow, when lectures start.
