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.

Visit to Tokugawa Art Museum and a Botanical Garden (by Julie)

On Wednesday, November 11, Ben, Rosie and I visited the Tokugawa Art Museum and the Botanical Gardens located next to it. The museum contained art, furnishings, armor and garments passed down through generations of the Owari Tokugawa family and date back to the period between 1603-1867. The Botanical Gardens next to the museum was beautiful. We had fun feeding the coi fish. While we tried, we were not able to land any food pellets directly in the mouths of the fish. To the Rotarians who were with'll remember our song: "Dooommoooo, arigato, goziamashta buddaddada ting!"
