"Today was our second full day at Soka University, and it was just as much fun. It made me feel really cool and special when we would run into students that we'd met the day before and have them come up and say hi to us. It feels awesome knowing that I now have friends on the other side of the world!"

 I can't really describe my time during the trip because it was more than I ever imagined it to be. Of course I learned, but it was more than that. It was enlightening and expansive and ultimately gave me a lot of chances to experience and I'd like to think that I'm a bit worldlier.
