Japan... Version 2!

Back in 2005, I visited Japan... no, actually I lived in Japan.  It became the most memorable time of my life then.  I had a lot of fun, learned a lot about Japan, about technical stuff (wind engineering), and well, I also had my share of misadventures and all that, as a foreigner in a foreign land.  While I tell friends of my stories, some of them say it must have been a nightmare.  Not at all.  I loved it.  Anyway if you haven't yet, read my Japan 1.0 blog.

Now, almost exactly 5 years later, once again I am visiting - and actually living - in Japan, starting tomorrow.  But this time instead of 2 months, it's 3 years.  I am taking up my PhD studies at Tokyo Polytechnic University (or in Japanese, "Tokyo Kougei Daigaku"), and specifically under their Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) Program on "New Frontier of Education and Research in Wind Engineering.

Here's to less "misadventures" and yet more fun and even more learnings and experience in the Land of the Rising Sun!
