オランダでの研究活動の終了

さきほど研究室の自室の部屋の鍵を秘書さんに返してきました。PC内も、デスクの上も、いらなくなったサンプルもすべて処理してきました。すべては私が来た時そのままの光景です落ち込み

今日でオフィシャルにはここでの研究活動が終わりました。研究室でお世話になったすべての人への感謝の気持ちを込めて、今日は朝から早起きして、大量の寿司を作りました。使った米はなんと10合!!(笑)すべては日本から持ってきた日本米です。貴重なキラキラ日本米キラキラだけど、それ以上にお礼がしたい。日本の良いところをできる限り伝えたい。そんな気持ちで作りました電球

作戦は昨日から始まっていました。直属の上司が今日これないということで、彼には別にちらしずしを作りました↓。

(昨日作った上司へのちらし寿司)


まあ、日本のレトルトの寿司素を使っているからそんな下手なものはできません(苦笑)。余った、お米を利用して次の日作る巻きずしを練習しました。

その結果がこれですびっくりびっくりびっくり見た感じ綺麗でしょはてなはてなイナリ寿司に、巻きずし3種類(アナゴ、卵、きゅうり、かんぴょう、カニカマ、シーチキン、スモークサーモン、アボガド)、ガリに日本緑茶のセットでした。所要時間4時間。。。出来上がったときにはヘトヘトでした。

近づくとその歪さがわかります(笑)でもおいしそうでしょ?今夜はこれらの切れっ端で一人寿司パーティーです悲しい

頑張って作った甲斐あって、来てくれた人たち(夏休み中で人が少なかったですが、それでも20名くらいはきたかな)は、一口ずつくらいでしたが、みんなおいしいと言って食べてくれました。中でもイナリ寿司は珍しいらしく、バカ売れでしたにっこり

食事がおいしいと会話も弾みます。一番びっくりした質問がこれ。あるベトナム人男性との会話。

べ:「さとし、いつ帰るの?」


さ:「9月頭だよ。」


べ:「で、いつ結婚するの?」


(一同笑い)


さ:「!?結婚の前に卒業しなきゃ(笑)」


この研究室の中で、私に彼女がいるのは有名な話です(ゼミで公言したからなあ)。世界どこ行ってもイジラレルのは避けられないようです。。。

ルームメイトから、こんなお手紙も頂きました。無許可ではありますが、あまりにも嬉しかったので、(匿名で)掲載させてもらいます。

Dear Satoshi

It's very nice to have met you.
Tidy, polite, diligent are the impressions you left in my mind.
Behind is your warm, kind, friendly heart.

Wish all the success in your career; all the sweet in your life!


これを日本語で書くのは恥ずかしいので、やめておきます。何が嬉しいって、自分をものすごく内面で評価してくれたことです。

ここにきて、自分と周りとのレベルの差に驚愕しました。自分は言葉すらまともにしゃべれない、何も貢献できそうなものを持ち合わせていない。その私が、ここにいるたった唯一の日本人。日本人代表とまでは言わないけれど、日本に泥を塗るようなことだけは、絶対にしてはいけない。そう自分に誓いました。

それからというもの、とにかく必死に食らいついていきました。英語の論文も数多と読んだし、分からないことは分からないとはっきり何度も聞きました。今できないものは仕方ない、できないならできないなりに態度で示そう。

そうした積み重ねが、最後こういう空気をつくり、何よりも自分の今の気持ちが誠実にその答えを示しています。

来てよかった。これてよかった。あれだけつらかった最初の研究室が、今では第二の母校に思えます。

なごり惜しい気持ちは多々ありますが、今思うのは、もう一度日本に帰って、しっかり勉強し直そうということです。ここにきて、改めて日本の素晴らしさ、レベルの高さを知りました。海外どうこうの前に、1人の大人として、エンジニアとして、もっと日本でやるべきことがあるなと思いました。もちろん、視野は常に外に向けてね。次この土俵に戻るときは、何年かかるか分からないけれど、対等に話し合える立場になって「必ず」戻ってきたいなと思います。次は日本代表としても恥ずかしくないくらい成長してね。 続きを読む

Final week(最終週)

Finally, this week is my final week for my work in this university, except a day for meeting with a Japanese man in August.

Until this week, almost 11 months, I think time has gone by, immediately. Now, what I felt for time when I came here seem to be a lie. That might be a truth that I could make this experience fulfilling笑顔. Of course, still I have lots of things that I want to do, but at same time, now I feel certain degree of achievement. However, needless to say, I will do my best until last minute力こぶ.

Last Saturday, in Rotterdam,we had carnivalクラッカー; first, this was held by people who lived in Antilles, which is insular possessions by Netherlands.

They danced with a lilting samba音符. These mood made audiences happyハート. What a amazing luxurious and colorful costume!!

On last Sunday, I held a party for Y-san and his girl friend. During this stay, they took me care a lot! It is not too strong to say that thanks to them, I could spend fulfilling time in Netherlands. I prepared do-it-yourself sushi rolls料理 for them. I could enjoy a lot! Last day in this lab, I have plan for making sushi-rolls for them as well電球.

Well, this is another story. Do you know that we have a football match in September; キラキラJapan vs Netherlandキラキラ? This is our first match in our history. I really wanted to go and watch it, but unfortunately, my leaving date will be before the game date困った!! Despite this, now I have a ticket due to double booking!! This is mixed feelings. Does somebody come to Netherland for it??笑い汗

Peter Zumthor(建築家ペーター・ズントーの世界観)

Do you know an architect, Peter Zumthor? The people who study architect definitely know this man. He got The Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2009, which is known as same worth as like Nobel Prize among architects. As we know, Tadao Ando got it in 1995.

On the other day, my Japanese colleague, T-san, suggested to me that there is worth visiting his latest work,Bruder Klaus Field Chapel, which is located in Germany. I supposed it seems interesting, so I visited there last Sunday.

It took for 6 hours困った by train. However, journey on train is also interesting. On the way, I bumped into many numbers of children! There are many ethnic type of them, but I felt they are same. They all were so cute! On the other hand, on my return journey, I picked up a wallet on the train. The train I rode was international train from Germany to Netherlands, so I put it in immigration authorities. The man's word "than you so much" was very impressing.

During connecting time in Cologne;ln, I visited his another work, Art Museum Kolumba. I did not have enough time so I could not enter it. I took a picture only for appearance. In this phase, I did not feel such particular feelings.

Art Museum Kolumba


In about one hour after leaving Cologne, I arrived at nearest station, satzvey. Here you see, it must be rural. We can judge it if you see time table of trains; it has trains ever one hour笑顔汗!!

p1060330.jpg


In almost 7 hours after leaving my house, I could finally see it!! It stands in the midst of wheat field! It seemed as if it rides on the carpet of wheat!

p1060331.jpg


I could accept the reason why they eat breads everyday. The sound and appearance of wheat breathed by wind were great!!


p1060332.jpg


This was the impressive moment when I had been waiting for a long time! The appearance of this church was far from my concept that I had. During the journey it sometimes was rainy but at that time it showed great sun太陽びっくり It had to be caused by my daily good workにっこり電球

p1060355.jpg


This is the procedure how it was built. As you see, the inner shape was created by the lumbers combined together at their top.

img20090721.jpg


While, as you can see, on its frame work, concrete was cast by several layers. After hardening, the lumbers were burned炎. Of course, if it were ordinal structure,it would be cast once鐘

Many cold joints and trace of sand appeared落ち込み. It is available because this is architecture; it is possible if client and an architect agree with itOK.

p1060335.jpg


The hole is for getting sun light into inside. I wanted to do gas permeability test when I saw itブタ.

p1060336.jpg


We could see the trace had caused by flame炎. Can you say it is no influence as a structure? I want to ask my supervisorウインク.

p1060342.jpg


Vaulted ceiling was beautifulキラキラ. It was sufficient for illuminating inside without any windows.

p1060343.jpg


In addition, at the top of hole, sphere of glasses were set, which played a role as if they were indirect illuminations電球. It drew mysterious atmosphere. Its interiors were adjusted to be simple, but that was fitted surroundings, I supposedチュー.

p1060345.jpg


As identified above, I mentioned my arbitrary views. Before coming here, I had few opportunity for visiting especially for modern architects' work. The reason is, in my opinion, there exists their egos in their work泣く. On the other hand, civil engineering structures are considered for many reasons and historical backgrounds in the site. Therefore, I had aspect that I paid little attention to them怒る.

However, from this visiting, I could feel his efforts for adjusting with its environment電球. It means both have both different concept, and they should be respected for. Even for only it, there was worth visiting having an awful timeウインク.

P.S Without saying, ate my fill of German wurst(sausages)ブタ!
