Architecture School, was on the rowing team. See photos
of him and the team, and photos

- It's been a quite a while already since Alex and Alan went to Japan in
June of 1997. Alan was able to meet up with many of the people who were so
kind to him 20 years ago when he lived there. Wonderful people they are.
Alex and Alan traveled from Tokyo, to the Kurobe area in the "Alps",
to Toyama, where lives Adachihara Touru-sensei, the kindest and one of the
most interesting men Alan has ever met. (More to come here). Then on to Kyoto,
where he lived in 1981 and 1982. Many changes in that city, but still
wonderful and with the greatest ra-men shop in the world ( for the address if you ever plan on a trip to Kyoto). Day trips from
there included Nara and Hiroshima on the Shinkansen.
