The presentation was finished in the end.

<Conference Hall and Huge Audiences>
I am now ready to fully enjoy the excursion provided by the local committee!
I made my presentation on time, and defensed every question raised by audiences.
I am thus now very very happy!!
As a starting point of my journey, I will visit to old jewish town in this afternoon.
I am now in Krakow, Poland (July 16, 2009) to take part in "The 2009 Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics". I am a nominated speaker to give a presentation titled with "b->s hadronic decays at Belle" on behalf of the Belle collaboration. It's too nervous to wait and prepare the talk tomorrow (09:00 a.m., July 18, 2009). I believe, however, I could do with my best efforts.
It was terrible time when I arrived at airport in Krakow 'cause It starts to fall down a heavy rain as soon as I get out the airport. So, I just stayed inside the airport about 30 minutes. Anyway, I took a taxi and safely arrived at Daisy Hotel in which it is located at the outside the city of Krakow.

I walked around Main Square which is known as the largest market in the world. For me, however, it doesn't interesting at all 'cause I have not enough money to buy something. The only thing that draw my attention was the old-cathedral. It looks like that the architecture was built in 500 years old or more. I felt something like weird. I think these kind of feelings are arised from my knowledge that Catholic made lots of mistakes long times ago. Whenever I enter the ancient Cathedral, my feeling (or mind) was uneasy.

Walking outside the Main Square is the way to go Wawel hill that is very famous place for tourists. However, It was nothing special for me.

These are all of my experience for the last two days.
After finishing my talk tomorrow (July 18, 2009), I will visit to the place that is known for an old Jewish town. In addition, I will go to Dunajec River Gorge and Niedzica Castle as for an excursion in Sunday. My staying in Krakow is excellent in terms of everything except for the one that I am alone. T.T Actually, I am here with two Korean Professors, one from Korea Univ. and another from Kyeongsang Univ. However, I really want to have a friend whose age is similar to me, thus the interesting topics are the same with me.
Anyway, please pray for my presentation in tomorrow!
