1/4/06: A poem by the class before departure.
It's time to get the friction on
Prepped and anxious
Families left behind
The cold winter
Lived happily ever after.
Comments about the trip:
"Tokyo was one of the most amazing cities I have ever seen...
I will always remember the things we saw and did on this trip!" - Mitch Hoffman
"I absorbed so much culture and had so many experiences in so many different
locations. I'm still trying to sort it all out and really take it all in, but needless to
say it was the best time I've ever had. Everything was an adventure and every experience
a new one." - Brent Allen
"I had so much fun, and I am a little bit sad to be back at Eckerd. It was
the coolest thing I have ever done." - Lisa Barrett
"I left my soul in Akihabara. Japan was awesome!"
- Brandy Eyers
"I really love Japan and would love to go back someday. I have never been to a place that could integrate the culture of the past with the technology of the present so well. Not only was it fascinating to see everything as it is today, but it was also wonderful to learn about the rich history behind all the different places and the rituals unique to each area."
