 On a different day I took a taxi with a Korean friend and was asked what my nationality was. When I replied that I was Japanese he started to rant about why he doesn'​t like Japanese people and all the terrible things that they had done to them. It was good that we only needed a short taxi ride but was definitely a wake up call. I have since stopped replying that I am Japanese and just tell people that I am American when asked. This was the first time that this has happened in these 7 weeks so I do not think that this school of though is common. ​ On a different day I took a taxi with a Korean friend and was asked what my nationality was.

-I have finished the final versions of the Installation tutorials for Xenomai and PODO, and the tutorial for the installation of ROS simulators with the DRC-Hubo model. With these two tutorials done I can now move on to working on more advanced tutorials based on working with the simulated version of DRC-Hubo. For this I have to learn more about ROS and how to integrate it with PODO. Two specific ways I have been learning is using the ROS-Joy package to control the model using a usb game controller ​and setting ​up a simple navigation program to show case the power of the simulators to experiment real-world situations. I have finished implementing the Joy packages with PODO and have written that portion of the tutorial. However the implementation of the navigation stacks still eludes me. I will get this done before next week and will have that portion of the tutorial up as well. I have also just finished a rough draft of my tutorial on how to read sensor data from the simulators. This was easier than I had expected so I hope that I was able to write a good tutorial and that I did not misunderstand how to read feedback from the simulators. Though we started the upgrade process for DRC-Hubo2 (Jaemi) we haven'​t touched her since and am a little worried if we will be able to finish the upgrades before we leave. I will talk to some of the people from Rainbow about this today. ​    +I have finished the final versions of the Installation tutorials for Xenomai and PODO, and the tutorial for the installation of ROS simulators with the DRC-Hubo model.
