Share our Excitement & Join our Journey

Welcome to the travel blog of Rotary District 5580's Group Study Exchange (GSE) Team which will embark on an exciting five week goodwill / vocational exchange to Nagoya, Japan in November, 2009.

Here, our hybrid American-Canadian team of enthusiastic and adventurous young professionals, along with our lovely, talented and fearless team leader, will share cultural experiences and engage in unique vocational learning opportunities.

If you have come to this site, you are likely: a Rotarian, family member, friend or colleague of one of the team members, or... are just plain blog-curious. Either way, we encourage you to check our site often to learn about us, follow our progress as a team and of course, keep in touch as we explore Japan.

We thank Rotary in advance for the adventure of a life time and to all readers, we invite you to share our excitement and join our journey.

Evening Dinner Party (By Evonne)

I had a dinner party at my host family's. Kashi (GSE Committee), a novelist, a wife of a man who owns one of the largest Shinto Shrines in Aichi Prefecture, and a wife of a building developer who built the two largest buildings in Nagoya. It was quite an entertaining group. The meal lasted for almost three hours. Takeko made a very traditional tofu soup which was very delicious. Of course, that was just a small part of what was served. We had lots of laughs, especially about all our "lost in translation" moments. I think a lot of what I say is not quite understood but we enjoy being together anyway.
