Our mailing system for the teachers and the office workers (only) in the university was somewhat tied up. I worked all day without an e-mail, which was weird; I was nervous whether I miss some important information. I was invited to give a talk for company managers and engineers in Shimosuwa, my hometown. I asked my parents if they wanted to come, but they hesitated. Anyway, I started working on the presentation, which requires no internet connection. It will be a two-hour talk for non-specialists, my first experience in my life.
An office worker/farmer brings vegetables to the institute, which are not to be sold: too big, broken, not in a good shape, etc. He lets us take them home. Today, I brought cucumbers and eggplants. They look very fresh.
I woke up 4:30 AM. The bus to Incheon International Airport left the hotel at 5:30 AM. I arrived at the airport at 6:40 AM. I checked in using an automated check-in machine, then I went to Seven-Eleven on the first floor to buy candies to the office workers and my students of the institute. I went through the immigration, and then looked around shops in the airpot to look for souvenirs for Katya. Before the departure, I spent my time in a Sky Team lounge, taking a light breakfast. Then I got on a Delta plane for Honolulu bound for Narita. I took a seat, half asleep. A male … Continue reading
An office worker gave me some eggplants this year, too. These are the first of this year. Probably, he will give us more. Katya sent me a picture of a new bridge. APEC2012 will be held in Russky Island, Vladivostok in September. Katya said that the city has changed very much.
Proposal is proceeding and finishing; I need to finish the financial and CV parts. I woke up at 1 AM, worked, and slept and woke up at 8 AM, and I went to the office. Katya and I played tennis for one and a half hours. Then I kept working in the office. I came back home at 8 PM. Katya and I took Maya-san and left Kofu to Shimosuwa.
Katya is Orthodox, whose Christmas is January 7th, and I am not Christian. Besides, today is not a holiday in Japan. It was (officially) the last day before the holidays in our institute, so all the members, professors, researchers, students, and office workers, cleaned rooms, buildings, yards, parking lots, and so on. This is the common way of ending a year in offices in Japan after the Year-End party. For dinner, Katya made Borscht. She used Sauerkraut for the first time in Japan. Katya did not care about Borscht, but she said she felt like making it on a winter day like today. My colleague brought us a typical Hawaiian … Continue reading
Before the winter vacation comes, we had a year-end party this evening of all the members of the institute, namely 90 members including teachers, researchers, students, and office workers. Everybody got together. The party was held in a banquet room in a hotel. A bus was reserved from the institute to the hotel, although I rode my Lamborghini. It was a big dinner over drinks; the general idea of the party is forget bad things that happened during the year. I have not told anybody about my blog except the American professor, so I just show you foods served, not people present. Many students were there, so the quantity was … Continue reading
