Sorry it has been so long since I have updated. I went nuts there for a while getting my presentation ready, but it is done and out of the way. I think it went really well, and I will post more about it later.
I also have to post about the Yokosuka Jazz Dreams show I went to last week, my lunch with one of the naval officers and a defense contractor, and my trip to Isesaki. I am still in Isesaki, using my friend's computer, but it's late and I'm going to bed, so I will post all the details when I get back to Yokosuka (and a sea breeze and air conditioning!) tomorrow or the next day.
