Friday afternoon, I presented my paper to a panel of scholars at the conference I am attending in Chicago. The presentation went well. There are so many things I would like to write about in Japanese, so I will leave details for later dates. I have met many new people and made friends with some of them, while meeting with old friends.

Today I will visit the United Center to see a statue of Michael Jordan. I will take a day off tomorrow Sunday; perhaps I might hop on a bus to go to Milwaukee.
