While in Japan, I did not finish preparing my presentation, so I woke up at 3 AM to finish it. I had breakfast at 7 AM. The bus left at 8 AM for SiChuan University for the forum starting at 8:30 AM.

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

I was asked to join a forum in Chengdu, China in April with six other Japanese researchers. Japanese and Chinese scientists will intensively discuss together in a hall for two days. Today, I reserved flights to/from China. I hope that it will be a good chance to get to know new people there.
