SAISUA and CSIP jointly organized Ninth International Talk on January 21 (Thurs), 2010 from 18:00 to 19:30 at the Lounge of Research Quadrangles. There were a total of 20 participants with a breakdown of 7 university students and 13 from university faculty and staff members. The speaker was Ms. Ruth Patricia Cortez Recinos, a master student, with a title of "El Salvador: Tom Thumb of the Americas". She is a first student from El Salvador to the University of Aizu who entered in October 2009. Wearing a traditional costume, she introduced her country referring to the diversity of natural landscape, friendly people, food and tradition. The participants hanged on her talk enthusiastically which was rather unfamilier to the attendees. Many qustions were raised during the talk and an active exchange session was held.
