Waiting for the most exciting adventure of my life!

Konnichiwa!

Only 24 hours left!!! Can you believe it? I'm ready to live one of the most interesting and exciting experiences of my life. I'm referring to my first trip to Japan. As you already know, I won a scholarship to attend the WorldCALL 2008 which will be held in Fukuoka - Japan from August 4 to 8, this year. How exciting it is! You can't imagine how happy I'm am.

I'm attending the conference with other 7 Webheads: Nina (Ukraine), Erika (Brazil), Nelba (Argentina), Neny (Indonesia), Hala (Sudan), Jennifer (Argentina), and Susan (Iran). We've been in touch since last March, when we got the great news. You may visit our Wiki and see how we have been preparing ourselves to this adventure.

In Tokyo, I'll be happy to meet my friend and former student Matsuro Manabe, who has been a great support to us. Then, in Fukuoka, we will be happy to meet f2f all Scholarship Awardees and our friends Tom Robb (Chair, WorldCALL 2008 Scholarship Committee), Claire Bradin Siskin and Vance Stevens (the main Webhead).

Through this blog I intend to share with you, day after day, my learning experiences, panel discussions, pictures, sounds, culture, and many interesting things about Japan. You can also follow us by Posterous or Twemes.

Thanks God for giving me this gift.

I'll miss you all.

Love,

Evelyn

hola prof! espero se encuentre super bien, observe las fotos y están super, me imagino que le fue super por allá en el congreso y que fue una gran experiencia haber estado y compartido con toda esa gente. Aunque no entendi lo que estaba escrito debajo de las fotos y los videos se puede ver que la paso muy chevere y que estuvo compartiendo y aprendiendo mucho, el kimono estaba muy lindo, el de usted y los que llevaban sus compañeras. Espero que haya recorrido mucho por allá... Bendiciones prof :) Besitos (",)")
