Katya and Natalia arrived home before 6 PM. They were waiting for me. They seemed to be tired after two journeys, from Saipan and Atami/Hatsushima. I cooked tuna steaks for dinner. Katya had bought rice crackers as a souvenir in XIV Hatsushima. On the way back home, they dropped by Gotenba Premium Outlet. They bought croissants at Fauchon for me. Boy, they were real, real French croissants! The flour must be imported. It is the most genuine croissant I have ever eaten in Japan. Everybody was tired, and we went to sleep.
I woke up at 6 AM and left Shimosuwa with Maya-san by train. In Japan, animals must be kept in a bag in the train. Since I did not have a bag big enough for Maya-san, I put a blanket on her not to be seen. Maya-san behaved nicely in the train; she was still and quiet. We arrived at Kofu station at 7:30 AM. We went back home, and I went to the institute. I was tired whole day after the business trips. Meanwhile, Katya and Natalia took a boat to Hatsushima Island from Atami. They seemed to be tired, too, after the trip in Saipan.
Yesterday, I went to Chiba for a talk. Today, on Sunday, I was asked to give a lecture in Osaka University. I left the apartment at 6 AM. I took trains. In the bullet train, a wall socket and the internet access were provided, so I was able to work. In the monorail in Osaka, I took the seat at the very front of the car. I felt a bit scared; it was like a roller coaster. I arrived at Osaka University. I talked for an hour and a half at the seminar. After my lecture, I quickly went back to Osaka station. I took brochettes and a glass of … Continue reading
I woke up at 5 AM in the morning. I quickly went to my office to prepare my presentation for today; I was invited to give a lecture at the open house of the University of Tokyo, Kashiwa. I worked till 9:30 AM and came back home. Katya took me to the station for the train leaving at 10:30 AM. In the trains, I was checking my PowerPoint file again and again. After arriving at “Kashiwanoha-campus” Station, I took lunch at McDonald’s in front of the station. Then I took a shuttle to the campus. The place looked a bit lonely, being out of the town. I went into … Continue reading
Katya and Natalia took a plane early afternoon and left Saipan for Narita. From Narita, they took a direct bus to Kofu Station. Maya-san and I came to pick them up. At the station, Maya-san knew whom she was waiting for. Katya and Natalia arrived at 11:30 PM, nearly midnight. Maya-san kissed them, especially Katya. I drove them home. They gave me a T-shirt and chocolates. Katya showed me a lot of pictures. All pictures looked beautiful and fun, on the land and in the sea. Then, Katya and Natalia went to sleep quickly and peacefully.
In the evening, I went to Tokyo for an annual meeting of the Hongo apartment. Before the meeting, I went to the apartment in Shibakoen to check the bicycles. They were not yet arranged in a proper way. Moreover, more bicycles than registered. I sent an e-mail to the real-estate managing company about the situation. Then I went to Shinjuku, and had a pork cutlet for dinner at Wako. . In the meeting for the Hongo apartment, there were four people. We talked about the schedules for the year. After the meeting, I went out of the building to find that Tokyo became much brighter than that after the … Continue reading
After the midnight flight, Katya and Natalia arrived in Saipan. They seems to be doing fine there. The hotel seems OK, although Katya said it is old. I am busy. This evening, I worked with Maya-san in my office.
After lunch at home, I took Katya and Natalia to the station, where they took a bus at 2:15 PM to Narita Airport. The bus arrived at the airport before 6 PM, and the plane left at 8 PM. They will arrive in Saipan at midnight. They will stay there for four nights. We will talk on Skype. I am very much looking forward to hear them.
Katya and Natalia went to Tokyo in the morning. I came home for lunch and took Maya-san out for a walk. Then I went to Tokyo, too, but for a discussion with two company researchers for the new project. Yes, the project has started. Actually, it started on October 1, but I was at the conference in Boston. The discussion started at 3 PM and ended at 5 PM. We decided to have another meeting on October 27. It will be busy three years. I came back home at 8:30 PM. Katya and Natalia talked me about their fun in Tokyo. Tomorrow, they will leave for Saipan.
Last night, I found out that I had left my glasses on board. I called to the airline company this morning after they started working. They kept the glasses. It was lucky that I stayed in Narita, eventually. The hotel shuttle took me to the airport from the hotel. At the airport, the temperature was above 25 C. No wonder I sweated. I went up to the ticket-selling desk, as I had been told, and received the glasses. Lucky me! Then I took a bus to Shinjuku, Tokyo, not to Kofu, in order to attend a real estate seminar at Hilton Tokyo, given for the representatives of apartments. This free seminar was held … Continue reading
