As many Swiss Alumni from the Kansai area (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe) usually cannot attend the alumni gatherings in Tokyo due to the distance, the Kansai chapter organizes several events a year for its members. Following the invitation of chapter head Yuta Daigi and EPFL Alumni head Aurelio Cortese, 13 people gathered in Kyoto on the evening of Friday, June 10. For many probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the event was chosen to be a traditional Kyoto-style tofu dinner on a terrace above Kamogawa River, called Kawadoko.
Sitting on the terrace of Tosuirou, memories of studying in Switzerland were exchanged and soon happy laughter drowned out the buzz of mosquitoes and the jazz music played at a nearby street corner. Thank you very much to Yuta and Aurelio for organizing this great networking event! (Pictures: Aurelio Cortese; Kyoto-design.jp)
