this is going to be my last blog post from Japan. I am unplugging our internet after I post this to return the converter box. We have spent the last 2 or 3 days packing and cleaning out our apartment which has been hampered by most of us getting a pretty awful 24 hour flu bug.
I just had a good-bye lunch at KIT with my host and the other 2 professors in my lab. I turned in my office key, paid our last rent, and received my security deposit back. We'll be in the air in 48 hours. What an adventure this has been.
Bye from Kyoto!
