It’s been many months and summer is almost here. Cherry blossoms have bloomed and fallen. During the holidays and into the spring, a few bumps along the way led to headaches and delays. Beneath all that however were the trips, festivals, and most importantly the people there to push you through those times. In Nagasaki, one such group does that through the magic of music.
A special thanks to The Nagasaki Foreign Settlement Glee Club. I love you all and couldn’t have done this without you!
Sorry for the delay. Had to borrow a friend’s computer to do this! Thanks so much Matt!

Recently finishing his degree in Physics at the University of Calgary, Joseph can be found either hiking the Canadian Rockies, playing guitar for elementary children or setting up his tripod to take photos of the Milky Way. By moving to Omura, Nagasaki-ken as an ALT for local high schools, he hopes to find a second home where he can explore the landscapes and picturesque moments that Japan has to offer.
