一期一会 a once-in-a-lifetime chance

I'm home from the discussion session! :)

I have met a lot of new people including Japanese. Especially I made good Latvian friends, whom I'm thinking to visit this summer, hopefully. They promised me to welcome me. ;) I was kind of surprised that we didn't have any cultural differences at all. I felt really close to them. I guess it depends on their personalities, but I'm glad that we've become really good friends beyond the border. :)

We learned the word "a once-in-a-lifetime chance" from the tea ceremony which we did as our course's hands-on activity. I won't see everybody in the session in the future, but it is true that we had a good time together and won't forget about it.

    Dear Ina Ina,
    Ya, I made close friends in Latvia, but I don't think I can visit them in this summer... I couldn't chenge my flight. But hopefully someday soon. I would love to visit Indonesia and see you too! A good friend of mine who studies in Australia has an Indonesian girlfriend. We talked how we wanted to visit Indonesia. Someday... over the rainbow...
    Love, Reiko Reiko
