Days 02 and 03: Settling down, sightseeing in Tokyo

August 8 and 9 were kept free on the schedule for the AUTh team to recover from the jet lag and start exploring Chiba and Tokyo. On Friday morning, we all went to an electronics shop in Funabashi to help the AUTh team buy pre-paid wifi SIM cards for their phones, in order for them to stay connected through our secret Facebook group, which we used to make announcements during the duration of the summer school.

AUTh students then visited several locations in Tokyo (Akihabara, Shibuya etc.) and some of them attended the 27th Tokyo Bay Fireworks Festival on Saturday evening. I hear that they remained very impressed with the size and duration of the fireworks!
