Our speaker on May 2, 2017 was Dundas resident and Rotary Exchange Student Joe Morgan. After 256 days in Japan Joe called into our meeting via Skype to fill us in on his time there. 
He reports that he's getting more and more confident with the language and that he's been enjoying a lot of the culture and was surprised to find out that Christmas isn't a very big deal in Japan. At first he found himself experiencing a bit of culture shock but as someone who like rice and fish he has been able to settle in nicely. 
The experience has been a fun one and has really given Joe the travel bug. He expects to teach overseas once his exchange program ends.
