Kick Baseball

Just finished the first two days of lectures on neutrino mixing and the KamLAND experiment.

This afternoon we headed off to a local high school and borrowed their sports ground for a kick baseball tournament. About 140 students from the summer school took part. We split into two pools of four teams for a league tournament, and then a final. My team lost our second game 11-10, but won the pool on point difference. Cleaned up in the final 12-10. Everyone looks exhausted. We were playing on a standard-issue Japanese high school sand sports ground, so I took a bit of a beating when I was feilding.

Welcome party tonight. The organisers are really going out of their way to justify compulsory beers here every single day. As long as everyone is having a good time...


  • So that is where you have been, probably why we haven't heard from you in a while. Mum
