Flying was therefore no longer at issue so that a replacement was sought. Because of this, I got the opportunity to go back to Japan to attend the course. For this I would like to thank Craftlines.
In order to develop everything right in the Benelux, I asked my girlfriend Renske Dussel to come with me. Apart from the fact that it is more fun, it is certainly useful for follow-up. By working together, everything goes faster and more thoughtful.
Departure on March 12, to ensure a timely arrival and participating in the training. With a stopover in Copenhagen, we had the opportunity to travel together on the next flight with Astari Swatantri, the distributor of Finland and former fellow instructor in the Netherlands. I know Ari for 10 years now, we have followed all the trainings and supplements together. 10 years of friendship is now celebrated in Tokyo, how nice is that!
And then arriving in Japan, meeting with dear friends and participating in another nice addition to Art Clay Silver. The group is composed the teacher Motoko Nakatani (Maggie) and various distributors. Mother and daughter Jackie Truty & Katie Baum (America), Kristy Walden (America), Shruti Devi (India), Iliana Carillo (Mexico), brother and sister Sim & Ken (China), Hai Zhao (China), Morana Lee (Hong Kong ) Astari Swatantri (Finland), Renske and I (Holland) and of course Daisuku Minagawa, Mark Atkinson, Nicole Teng, Seigo Mukoyama and Mr. Aida. Where would we be without these last 5! Especially Dice, he has accompanied us throughout the trip and helped where necessary, a true friend!
In addition to the course we have visited the factory (Aida Chemicals), the museum (Fuchu), the headquarters of Aida Chemicals, Asakusa Shrine and Tokyo Hands. We also enjoyed great food and dear companion. In particular, the farewell dinner hosted by Mr. Aida was phenomenal!
And then it's time to go back home, on March 20 we leave early in the morning with a time difference of eight hours, we arrive around 20:00 to Shiphol. We said goodbye to Ari in Copenhagen.
Dear all, thanks for this great experience. I cherish the memories!
