You never know who you meet when doing a makeup --  a fellow Rotary ambassadorial scholar! 
 
Yukari started out as an ambassadorial scholar from Japan to Munich.  After completing her year of undergraduate studies, she stayed in Munich to complete both her Masters and PhD degrees in Linguistics.  Yes, although she was from Japan, she got hooked on Munich and stayed there, speaks excellent German naturally, and joined Rotary in 2009.  We stayed after the meeting for a chat.
 
What a delightful and dedicated Rotarian!  Hopefully the photo she sent is attached with her email.

It is not often that I meet a fellow ambassadorial scholar.  My club is the Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona (District 5370) , in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.  I was an ambassadorial scholar from 1972 – 1973, and my year of study was at the University of Southampton in England.
 
I joined the Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona in January, 1984, and was our club’s president from 1988 – 1989.
