More Nostalgia!


Well, today the Summer School Program at Gifu University in Japan begins. Exactly one year ago, I was there to participate. Hard to believe it's already been a year since then. To all my junior students who are there right now, I wish a happy and fun summer. (And that they don't die of heatstroke or get bitten by venomous centipedes, of course*)

So, eight weeks in Japan. Can't say I'm not a little jealous, but what the hell. I've had my turn, and it was awesome. Besides, starting this September, I'm going there for a whole year. Now that is going to be grand. Until then, I can rest easy knowing that I get to spend the summer in a temperature slightly less murderous than the average temperature in Gifu this time of year. No oppressive humidity either.

That's enough strolling down memory lane for today, anyway. Stay tuned for more lucid dreaming info tomorrow!


*Yes, they do have venomous centipedes. One of my class mates got bitten last year, and had to go to the hospital. She was okay, though. Don't worry.

  7. The sign? It says "Gifu University Extramural Dorm and Study Facility". It's where we lived during the summer course.
