We know the old saying "all good things must come to an end" is absolutely true and Evonne and I experienced it firsthand on Tuesday when we returned from Magome. We had planned to spend our last night in Nagoya with maybe one or two Rotarians and GSE members but much to our suprise many others came out (Mr. Fukaya, Fumi, Alex, Takanori Suzuki (past Foundation Chair), Kash, Teddy Bear and Summer). We started the evening with dinner at a small restaurant where we were presented with beautiful watches from Mr. Fukaya. We also saw some magic tricks peformed by Takanori Suzuki and were challenged to some brainbusters (e.g. building a pyramid with two tiny blocks and calculating a math equation...thank goodness we all failed miserably...not just me).
The night ended with yet another karoke session (yes, we are completely hooked). Once again, the night was great fun.
In the morning our hosts and chaueffeur extraordinares took us to the airport for our royal sendoff. For both Evonne and I, it was a bit of an emotional send off. To help us through the flight to Tokyo, we began our official countdown to Winnipeg (the district conference), where we know we will see many of our Japanese friends.
A big THANK YOU to all for making our last night in Nagoya a memorable one.
