|NPO Sightseeing COARA general meeting was held at COARA Office on the second floor of NetPiazza in central Oita.|
|Mr. Ono,the chairman of the board of directors,reported about the activities and account of 2004 fiscal year.|
|All the attendants listen to him carefully by referencing the distributed report.|
|The snacks on the table wait the end of the meeting. The work plan and budget draft of this year were discussed and approved. The general meeting was over successfully.|
|We moved to a restaurant nearby to have an exchange meeting.|
The restaurant has an open atmosphere with good display of the dishes on the wall.
|Mr. Kugimiya wears a wonderful Aloha shirt. I toasted with Mr. Ikeda with a bottle of water.|
|On a hot and humid day like today, cool taste of beer refreshes everybody.|
|Mr. Fujino makes it a rule to have three "Off-alcohol days" a week and live healthy, he appealed.|
|Mr. Ono didn't drink yesterday just for today's party. The beautiful lady, Ms. Kuwano, is one of my closest friends from Yufuin.|
|White wine and red wine we enjoyed today.|
Today's gadgets of the day.
The key board was folded into three and became the size of the palm. The board was designed for cellular phone data input use.
|We enjoyed pleasant chatting in the exchange party. Mr. Abe, who gave us many pleasant talks today, hoisted the final toast.|
|The chef and his wife.|
|The sky was still bright and three men wanted to go somewhere from now.|
|We have less rain in this time rainy season, but the silk tree flower reminded me of the rainy season anew.|
I returned back home by bus. The rice paddies nearby reflected Mt. Yufu (left) and Mt. Tsurumi on the water in the sunset. I wished I could make our Oita more pleasant place through the activities of NPO Sightseeing COARA.
