Being Welcomed into the ALPHA Family

As if Phil and I didn’t already feel very welcome here on Awaji Island where everyone has been so kind and hospitable to us since our arrival, the students here at ALPHA threw us a welcome party yesterday evening to help us settle into the student accommodation. We met a lot of very interesting students and professors and were very touched by the efforts the students went to. We also got to taste a number of authentic Japanese foods, with each of the attendees bringing a different homemade dish for the table. My favourite was the pudding – a jelly-like dessert made from powdered green tea but surprisingly with a strawberry flavour. Delicious. Or should I say ‘oyshi’?
