Lecture in Osaka on Sunday – Katya and Natalia left for Atami

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

Katya and Natalia back in Kofu

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.

Real estate meeting in Tokyo

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

Business trip to Tokyo, Project starting

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.

Some Russian Tastes

Natalia brought many Russian foods from Vladivostok. I showed you grapes. She also brought much bread, which fascinated Katya. I enjoy it, too. Vinegared herring from Vladivostok went well with the bread and white wine. Today, I had very good borsch. It was interesting that the taste was different from that Katya makes. For dessert, I had some Kiev chocolates that Natalia bought there. It was very good, too.   It is amazing how much she brought.

Business trip to Kawasaki

I took a train leaving Kofu at 10:30 AM; there was another business meeting, this time in Kawasaki. The meeting started at 2 PM and ended at 5:30 PM. When I went out, it was raining and dark. The meeting was held on the 16th floor of the building shown above. I took trains to back to Kofu.  I arrived home at 9 PM. Natalia grilled fish for me for dinner, which was very good. Katya told me that they had been to Kojima, an electric shop today.

How would Natalia enjoy Kofu?

After dinner, Katya and I were talking about how to have fun in Kofu. Kofu is a city OK, if not fancy. However, it is not a suitable place for foreign tourists to stay in.  Now that Katya is working, Natalia should stay home alone. Where can she walk out? We could not think of places for three of us (or four of us) to enjoy together in the evening after Katya and I come back from work, except for restaurants. We will think about it.

Business trip to Tokyo

I arrived at Kofu station at 6:15 AM by my motor cycle. For early breakfast, I took a beef bowl at Yoshinoya in front of the station. Then I took a bus to Tokyo. The bus was late by an hour because of a traffic jam. I arrived at the conference site in Odaiba at 10:30 PM.    Our institute director carried out a 40-minute speech.  I helped him with the poster presentation.  Our presentations ended with no problem. I took a bus back to Kofu at 5:30 PM from Shinjuku. It arrived at 7:40 PM at Kofu station. I took a motor bike back home. Natalia brought Russian bread from Russia … Continue reading
