This afternoon I have been thinking of a trip that I took to Tokyo seven years ago.
The trip was not a training trip, but instead was to provide technical support for a conference.
It was interesting to see the people celebrating under the beautiful trees full of blossoms.
During the conference we had a special team dinner to celebrate our accomplishments during the week. We had a lovely Shabu-Shabu dinner and really enjoyed the cultural experience. Click on the link for pictures from the entire meal.
After the conference I was able to spend Sunday with one of my Japanese colleagues and his family. We made a trip to Ueno to see more of the cherry blossoms. Then on Monday I visited our Tokyo office for some service and training meetings.
Another memory from the trip was the flight home, as it was my first flight on a 787 Dreamliner. See: First 787 Flight
Many more memories of the trip have wandered through my mind today. I also have some other wonderful memories of working on the project we were there for.
