Chrystine vs. Japan: Round 2
The first time I went to Japan was from January to mid-April in 2002 (a.k.a Round 1). I didn't own a digital camera and while I did take a lot of pictures I never got around to really putting them on the web. It was a fun trip, so fun in fact that I went again! On August 28, 2003 I went to Japan for a second time (Round 2!) to attend the Japan Center for Michigan Universities (JCMU) once again and finished up my Japanese language requirements for my degree. I took pictures and video everywhere I went and enjoyed every minute of it!
It was because of this section that I bought official webspace and my domain name, because Michigan State University simply did not offer enough room for all of these pictures. At first I made all of the photos 300 pixels wide since I was trying to conserve space (the first few months) and only posted a few, but after I bought my own space I increased the size to 400-550 pixels on the highest side. Still not huge, but they're at least .jpg files. If you want a larger version of a picture email me with the address and I'll see what I can do =)
FYI: Click on the DATE to get to the next folder and the specific DATES again to get to the photo galleries. Each gallery is accompanied with a paragraph or two explaining what I did for that time period and what the pictures are of. Sometimes the pictures got a little mixed up though so they're not necessarily in chronological order. Enjoy, and let me know if you have questions or comments!
