Day of activity: July 15th 2014
Today was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were signing and, because of my low tolerance for hot temperatures, I was sweating quite profusely… We started the day of by visiting a very nice shopping street in Suita. Many of the commerces had been kind enough to welcome WCI participants in their shops. There, some of us learned to make sushi, tempura, and okonomiyaki, while others were helping out with sales or reporting the morning’s activities. After eating the delicious food that had been prepared by our peers, we moved to Kitasandi high-school where we were warmly welcomed. We got to interact with the students however, given my very limited ability to speak japanese, I had to come up with alternative methods of communication, which proved to be very entertaining for everyone. The time we spent with the students truly made my day. For this I must thank the community of Suita and WCI for allowing me to partake in such memorable and beautiful experiences.
Thank you so much!
