Ship for South East Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP)
The flags of ASEAN Ten plus Japan
Several weeks ago, I got the invitation to open house (or open ship?) of Ship for South East Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP) — a program where about 340 participants from Japan (40 people) and from ten ASEAN members (300 people) live together on board for about 50 days. Read there for more info of the same program in 2002 (link).
Unfortunately, I didn’t stay there long enough to see the ceremony… so, didn’t take that many interesting photos — but here’s a good one
Participants from Indonesia (plus Q and NHK reporter)
They set sail from Yokohama, Japan, on 4 November 2011. According to a friend, they just arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia, yesterday. So they are now still in Indonesia.
