In the morning, the Chinese student working with me presented his results in front of teachers and students. He did a very good presentation. He is from the mainland China, but received his master’s in France. Then he worked for two years in the US, and now is back in France again for his Ph. D. Today, I received all his data. Probably, adding some more data, we can write a paper.
The Chinese student is leaving Japan on August 10. He will then go back to China for the summer vacation to see his parents. Today, I invited the Chinese student, the student who instructed him, and a research associate to a dinner. I chose Ohajiki, a chicken-specialized restaurant, because it is one of the best chicken restaurants in Kofu and that the student is a Chinese Muslim. It is decorated in an old Japanese style. Beans and Tofu appetizers. I ordered a bottler of Kofu wine, which was good. Then chickens continued. Very delicate tastes. Dessert was an icecream. We left the restaurant at 9:30 PM. … Continue reading
Busy. I checked e-mails. I finished a report on the forum in China, which will be published in a society journal. I was invited to a conference in Korea in August, but the abstract was not finished yet. And other things to be done.
Although I came back from China, my trip was not over. I woke up at 2 AM and rode my bike to my office; today there would be the first general meeting of my project with all the researchers involved in from three universities and three companies. I started preparing my talks with my desktop, which ended at 6 AM. I came back home, saying hello and good by to Katya and Maya-san. I took my bike to the station. I left Kofu at 8 AM for Kyoto. The meeting started at 1 PM at Shimadzu Co. and ended at 4:30 PM. All results presented were good and satisfactory to … Continue reading
I woke up at 5 AM, checked e-mails, got packed, and left the hotel by bus at 6:30 AM for the airport with five other Japanese professors. We arrived a little bit early for the check-in time, so we had breakfast at McDonald’s. They sell rice porridge in China, but I had an egg McMuffin, because I wanted to eat something different. At the entrance of the airport, we found a souvenir shop “旅の佳品”, or “Chosen Goods for Travels”, only selling Japanese goods. On the internet, I found that this shop is run by a Japanese company. The plane left the airport at 9 AM. It was a smooth flight. … Continue reading
In the morning, I found that I was not able to use the university web-mail system of the university. I tried to make an international call to the internet administration in my university, but had a hard time making an international call from my room because the hotel staffs hardly understood English. After an hour of struggling, I managed to call to the university office to ask about the internet connection. They told me our mailing site might be blocked, and gave me a different address. It worked well. So, I was able to read mails from my colleagues. I stayed in my room, checking mails and working. At 11:45 AM, six … Continue reading
In the morning, I attended meetings as usual. I left Kofu for Narita at 12:30 PM and arrived at the airport at 3:30 PM. The ANA plane directly flying to Chengdu, China, was small and filled with travelers, mostly Chinese. A strong wind blew against the plane, and the body much trembled. It was not a pleasant flight, but the service was much better than that of JAL Cabin attendants were kind enough and helpful. The dinner was simple, standard, and acceptable. Four other members joining the forum were on the same plane, which arrived in Chengdu at 11:30 AM. It was rainy. The temperature was close to that in … Continue reading
