研究室キャンプ【Summer activity for the team】

posted Aug 26, 2015, 5:02 PM by Yoshitaka Uchida Hokudai

   It has been a while since the last update but we are on summer holiday. However, summer holiday means simply that I do not have to lecture so I have a lot other things to do. Many say Japanese people work too hard but yes we do indeed. We should relax a bit, at least for summer. So, I took my students to a camping site, doing a bbq, some fireworks and so on. We looked at the sky and there were beautiful stars, including some shooting stars. 
   As a news for the team, we have one new student now so I will be introducing her soon. Also there are a few part-time students helping us. The lab is always busy these days, which is pretty exciting. I never had a proper summer vacation while I was at University because I had to do 40 weeks of practical work during summer vacation for my course. 
   I had to find the place to work by myself and I remember it was very hard for an inexperienced Asian boy. I sincerely thank for farmers who had guts to employ me during my life in New Zealand...
