JAPAN FOUNDATION'S SECONDARY-SCHOOL EDUCATORS' STUDY TOUR 2005 : GROUP III.

WARNING : "Hey, this is just a personal website"

Here are some images of our trip to Japan :


Headings :

POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS (can be edited and/or translated from French)
GOOGLE EARTH© LOCALISATIONS
AUTHOR


A powerpoint presentation about the Japan's organization of space
(in French)


A powerpoint presentation
about the bay of Kobe
(in French)

 


An animated powerpoint map of the japanese megalopole (in French)


Each location is explained and linked to one of this page's pictures. This file still has to be completed. (In French, so far. I'd need some help to translate it in english)
(You need to download the free version of Google Earth®)


Jean-Michel MUYL

My personal website

The pictures have been downsized (to 1024x768 pixels). It's already OK to see them on your PC screen or to use them in Open-Office or Microsoft presentations (Word, Publisher, Powerpoint...). Just point the mouse on the picture and open the picture in a new window, you can download it on your PC with your mice's right button.
If you want the full high rez for some, just ask me and I'll send them by mail (just check your mail box accepts files as big as 2 Mo).

This page has been built during the 6 last months. I still have some other pictures and I'll go on completing it any time I'll have some time.
I'm happy to see how many visits I have. It was meant to be a link between us, and it's fine if it works.

If you want me to add some of your pictures, just send it to me

I hope everybody have a big time watching them.
I miss every member of this extraordinay trip, and all our fabulous japanese hosts. I hope I'll have the pleasure to meet them again, perhaps in France ?

Jean-Michel-sensei

Special thanks for their pictures and advices to Adrian, Ai, Alessandro, Cathy, Françoise, Geza, Haruko, Igor, Katherine, Laurent, Lidija, Odo, Steve
