John is finally back from Japan and more than a bit jet lagged. In between his napping, he has told me all about his time in Japan. For once, I am no longer jealous that I couldn't go with him. It sounds like the weather was miserably hot and everything was incredibly expensive. However, I would have loved to see all of the old buildings and temples (old architecture just warms my heart).
During the trip, John learned a lot and made many connections in the immunology world. He even won an award for the best presentation.
