Our students departed for Bangor on Thursday, May 26. Keiko and I are back in Tokyo and looking forward to some days of R&R.
The trip was great from our perspective but demanding in terms of time and energy. Perhaps for myself, getting old makes keeping up with a group of twenty-somethings both a challenge and opportunity! It was a great trip.
If you have had the time to follow some of the student’s blogs, you will know that they were deeply engaged in the trip. They were well received in Japan on a professional and personal level. Keiko and I were quite proud to be with them.
Keiko and I will remain in Japan through June 4 visiting with family and friends and making some business appointments. My business appointments relate to helping some of the Maine companies I work with to potentially seek opportunities in the Japan market.
