Don’t cry-ee, Dont sigh-ee, There’s a Silver Lining in the Sky-ee

So Jonathan and Renee left Okinawa today.

Yesterday we held a  surprise Bye Bye event at the university. Hundreds of staff lined the 100 metre long entrance gallery. They clapped, shouted, held up signs and played music as Jonathan and Renee  ran the the gauntlet.

We leave the elevator to find the majority of the university waiting.

Jonathan invited me to come and have a look at the then very baby OIST in August 2010. This sparked off the most remarkable six and a bit years of my life.
