The golden pavilion after making sushi

Today was the ady everyone experienced making sushi roll and taste it with some miso soup!

Some are good at making it some are making something else with sushi rice!

The best cloudy weather helped us not to get so hot and humid while walking to the Golden Pavilion from the school.

Good start of the program and some shower will cool down the temperature during the night so that we will have another fun day tomorrow at Nijo Castle.

For me?  After picking up my daughter at the kindergarten, we went through the zoo!

The Rock Garden rocks!

The weather here in Kyoto has completely recovered and got really hot humid though not as bad as it should be.  Everyone made it for schooling in the morning safely without major problems.

Our lunch today was at one of the cafeterias at Ritsumeikan University where Shingo was graduated from years ago.

Next to the university is the Rock Garden or Ryoanji temple where everyone began sensing about the Japanese gardens.

Hopefully this good weather continues tomorrow!

Hoping the weather to get improved on Monday!

Tomorrow will be the first day of the study abroad and hopefully the weather gets improved for us to begin the program nicely.

The rainiy season in Kyoto this year seems to mean real, but.....

10 students from COD and 15 students from ELAC are now ready for the program!

2015 Summer Study Abroad has begun in Kyoto

United Airlines gave all of us the Economy PLUS seat and everyone was happy though it still took over 12 hours from Chicago to Tokyo.

Our connection was smooth and transfered to Kyoto without any problems.

Communting practice will be tomorrow and we will be ready for everything!

The weather here is not too good but we cannot complain too much about it.
