This is Courtney updating from the beautiful Carleton College, and we're just wrapping up with American Orientation here! Tomorrow at 3:15 AM we will be waking up to leave for the airport where we will fly first to Chicago, then 14 hours to Tokyo, Japan. From there we will take a bus to our first destination, Niigata, where we will begin the conference and meet the Japan Delegation.
So far here at orientation we have been spending a lot of time bonding with each other and working in our round table groups. I'm learning so much already and we've barely begun, so looking forward to what's ahead!

We won't arrive in Niigata until late in the evening on the 28th, but we'll update you as soon as we can. Thanks!
