The busiest two weeks of the year at work are finally over. We had huge events and meetings on given that so many people are here for the Rugby World Cup.
One event I was particularly happy to have helped organise and be a part of was an event hosting the New Zealand Prime Minister during her trip to Japan last week. We also have had two charity lunch/dinner events with over 300 guests each (my job at one of these was to be the personal guard of the actual Rugby World Cup trophy that the teams are playing for), and a few events at foreign embassies. I've also seen the Australian Ambassador so much in the last week that he remembers me now, he's a very friendly person to talk with. It was really great to see so many events I've been helping organise come to fruition and go without any major issues, now I feel like the next month will be much more relaxed!
I'm not hugely into sports, but I received free A-Grade seating for the Australia vs Georgia rugby world cup game in Shizuoka next month which should be a fun experience. Since I've still yet to go to Shizuoka I'll use the opportunity to explore a bit.
