I visited Madrid to attend IPv6 Summit in Madrid 2003. Here's the photos taken during this trip.
In this trip, I used a shuttle bus from Chofu to Narita, available from Apr 25 2003. It took about 100 minutes to reach Narita and the number of passengers were very small (actually only me!), so it was very convenient!
I had to change my plane at Paris (Charles De Gaulle). My colleagues warned me about the transfer in CDG (esp. between terminal) because of its complexity. As far as I used, however, it is not so complex if you follow the sign properly. (Actually the colleagues who warned me always get stuck in something when they go abroad, so maybe it's their problem, not the problem of CDG:-) )
Here's the way to move from Terminal 1 (Satellite 3) to Terminal 2F.
The hotel was equipped with RJ-45 ethernet connector, and IPv6 connectivity as well as IPv4 connectivity was provided through it freely!
Scenary was beautiful and the weather was very fine (not hot, not cold, not humid), but there was no restaurant around this neighborhood... So I had to go to downtown to eat dinner by taxi (Around 20 Euro) or public transportation (bus to Avda America + Subway = 1.30 + = 1.5 Euro).
I worked for IPv6-plugtest, Hitachi's Booth install, and my presentation. Here's some pictures taken by Sumikawa-san.
Jamon (pronounced as 'ha-mon') means "Ham", and Paella (pronounced as 'Pa-e-lia') means a Spanish piraff flavored with garlic, saffran, olive oil etc. Although their oiliness was very heavy for my stomach, they were very delicious for me.
It was their first abroad trip together after their marriage.
But they said they'd enjoy their honeymoon in Italy in June, so it was just a pre-honeymoon(?). (Sorry for a very bad quality of image.... But please forgive me since it was quite difficult to take their pictures when they were falling in love :-))
I couldn't take any picture in the hall because of the lack of flash in my digital camera. But the dance was very intense and hard; it's quite difficult to dance flamenco!
Mr Sumikawa introduced Miyata-san and Kosuke-san to his wife as office-clerks from Momoya (I don't know why he chose momoya:-) )
