Today marks the last day of our buddy session with our awesome Japanese friends from Toyo University. This post is a compilation of all the things that we did for the past two weeks.
If my Japanese friends are reading this, please keep in touch with me and the other buddies!

A brief discussion session between buddies and participants (Shizuki, Kohei Kamijo, Tomoki Hoshina and Mizuki) about the kompang.
They even tried their hands in Islamic calligraphy (khat)!
Our friends did a few cool dances, including our traditional one at yesterday’s farewell party.
The BGU buddies were there too!
And that’s the end of our journey, being buddies to our Japanese friends in the Japanese Summer Programme 2016.
I’m honestly grateful for saying yes to joining this programme as a buddy because I got to meet, befriend and help my Japanese friends throughout their stay here. They learned a lot from us and we got to know all about their culture too! We’re all proud of you!
Besides that, I was given the opportunity to get to know all of my LG240 buddies! I’m telling you, these guys are hilarious! 😂
See you guys again when the new semester begins!
