San Francisco - The Journey Begins


Problem of the day: A plane leaves Philadelphia at 6:45 am. It arrives in San Francisco at 9:45 am. How many hours is the plane ride? (Hint: Click on World Time Zones to check time difference!)

Today, we arrived in San Francisco, CA for our orientation. I met with 158 other teachers from all over the US who are also traveling to Japan. Everyone has a story to tell...

The highlight of the day was dinner at Consul General Yasumasa Nagamine's home. We ate my favorite foods -- sushi and flan! It was a tremendous honor to be a guest of the Japanese Consulate. Do you know what a consulate is? The consulate had views of the Golden Gate bridge and San Franciso Bay.

Hey Inez- I wish you "traveling mercies" (in other words, have a safe trip), and I look forward to keeping up with your adventures.
Fifth graders come in tomorrow to begin their research on Japan, so they can know where you are.
Be well -
Diane
