Day 2 – June 4, 2012

12 Jun

Today was the start (officially) of the Technos International Trip!! After we all got breakfast, we got onto a public bus to go to Technos College!  When we got to Technos, we had the Welcome Ceremony – it was unbelievable!!  When we got to the college, we entered into this huge outdoor auditorium separated out by our universities.  They announced our names and we walked onto a red carpet where hundreds of students were cheering with flags; I felt like a rock star!  They were filming us to broad cast us on a huge screen above the stage we got on.  Once on the stage, we introduced ourselves one by one.  Everyone, in the crowd, went nuts and cheered!  After, we entered into the welcome party where there was tons of food and important people from Technos.  They did a few formal speeches, then we mingled and everyone asked to take pictures with us!  Later, we explored Fuchu, a city near our hotel, with the Technos students and visited a Shrine.  It was absolutely beautiful.  After we got back to our hotel, we went to a restaurant nearby, right outside our hotel, where we took off our shoes and sat on cushions on the floor.
