Submitting a report and making an instrument

Yesterday, after the seminar, I received a response from the governmental office telling me that they are not allowed to download files from free storage sites. It is reasonable, so I made the file separated into three and sent them by e-mail first. An officer said the report was fine, so I print it out, signed on it, and sent it by mail. A researcher came from Shimadzu. We worked on our instrument under development.

Seminar and meeting in Tokyo

I continued copying and pasting. At 2 AM, a mail arrived from a Mexican friend working for a French university; he invited me to the defense of his Chinese  PhD student, and the date of defense was decided on September 18th. So I will visit France in September. I finished the report at 4 AM. I uploaded the file to a free storage site and sent the url to the governmental institute asking to download it to check. I came back home, took Maya-san for a morning walk, and left for Tokyo for a seminar of a graphic software I am using. I slept in the train. I got off … Continue reading

Seminar in Shimosuwa

Katya, Mariya, Maya-san and I left our apartment for Shimosuwa at 4:30 PM. Katya drove me to Shimosuwa Production Support Center directly for my talk. She then went to my parents’, left Maya-san, and,  with Mariya, went  to see her Ukrainian friend living in Shimosuwa. In the seminar, eleven people came to listen to me, who were managers and engineers of  small industrial companies in/around Shimosuwa. They wanted to have some hints of the business in the near future. My talk started at 6:30 and ended at 8:30 PM, with many questions. It seemed that they had  understood me. The director asked a visit of some of the members to our institute … Continue reading

Real-Estate Exhibition and Meeting with Tenants

After I took buffet breakfast in Akiharaba Washington Hotel, I checked out and moved to “Bellesalle Shiodome” in Ginza, where “Real-Estate Investigation Fair by HOME’S” was held. On the way to the venue, there is an apartment “Nakagin Capsule Tower“, a monumental apartment designed by Kisho Kurokawa.    The venue was only 5-min walk from this apartment. There were seminars by lectures as well as 16 booths of real-estate companies to talk with. I had no time to listen to the seminars, so instead, concentrated on collecting materials to learn about the present situation of the real-estate business. I left the place at 3 PM. Then I moved to Nakaochiai to see … Continue reading

Lost and Found, and Seminar, and Lost

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

Last day of the seminar and meeting Katya

The seminar ended at 11:20.  Participants had lunch and took a bus at 12:30. We cleaned the rooms, had a meeting, and drove back to Kofu. On the way home, I became sleepy and took a nap in the car.  Then I dropped by at a cell-phone shop for reserving a cell phone to be used in France next week. I arrived home at 4 PM and met Katya after a month. She looked refreshed after the stay back in Vladivostok. She went out for her job.  I suddenly became sleepy and went to sleep with Maya-san.

Getting ready for the seminar

Today is Friday. I was talking on the phone with companies before the seminar starting on Monday. I was sending e-mails to participants. Right after the interview, I felt really tired, but now I feel fine. I think things are ready, but feel a bit worried. Anyway, for dinner, I had a piece of eel to cheer me up. Maya-san is on my lap. She seems to forget Katya, but I know she will be thrilled in a couple of days.

Tiring days continue

I was thinking I would be less burdened after the interview. Well, the seminar is close and there came more and more things to be done. These days, I am in front of the computer, sending and reading and sending mails, and preparing more and more documents. People pay for the seminar, so the responsibility is large. We had a heavy rain yesterday, and it is cool and nice. The weather is one thing that is pleasant. During the evening, I was so tired and talk with Katya only a couple of minutes. I do not sleep well thinking about the seminar.
