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.

Hosts Extraordinare! (by Julie)

After a week filled with many laughs and gourmet meals, I spent the last night with my second host family (the Osami family) preparing and enjoying a traditional Japanese dinner. They taught me how to peel live prawns (i.e. "epy") and treated me to a grilled dinner of meat and vegetables. We had many laughs when the prawns began to jump out of the box (and I laughed as I think one squirmed in my mouth when I ate it). Many, many, many thank yous go out to the Osami family for being such excellent hosts and to "Sana" for being my Japanese sensei. Cherese Sana - you are "cho subarashi".
