タイの留学生たち【Short-term visiting students from Thai】

     Thai is one of my favourite countries and our University and Kasetsart University (Thai) have a close relationship. Our team is helping this relationship by hosting short-term visiting Thai students in our laboratory for a day. The visiting students were going back to their countries soon thus we had a farewell party and a seminar. They are very good students and are very polite. They made friends with Japanese students quickly and I sincerely thank them for visiting us and hope to see them again. 
     We did not actually do much but a professor based at the University farm took them many different places to let them learn Hokkaido farming. He showed such a spirit of hospitality or "Omotenashi" in Japanese and I really respect him, seeing many other staffs here simply say they are too busy to show "Omotenashi" spirit. 
     Well, we were invited to some serious BBQ at the farm and Thai students did very well at their final seminar, showing a lot of pictures, including ones taken within our laboratory. Wonderful experience.
