Hello!! Yesterday, we went to the IDB in the afternoon. The building of IDB was very large-scale, and inside of the building was extremely clean. I heard many valuable things for me, especially, how to improve the economies of poor developing countries in L.A. I am very interested in the serious problem of poverty because I watched a TV program about Brazil when I was in Japan. It was very shocking to me. And I realized that there are a lot of people who live on less than $1 per day!! Therefore, I want to get a job of like the IDB in the future.

Hello, Kazu!
Visiting the IDB must be very interesting for you, and I'm glad to know that it'll help you learn about the fields that relate to the topics you've heard about. I think we have to act more as a developed country to eliminate the poverty even though some say it's too complicated to resolve completely. Knowing these kinds of facts makes you realize how fortunate we've been to take the life style we've enjoyed for granted, isn't it?

I think visiting the IDB was quite an eye-opener. I'd never even heard it about it before, but when they explained their mission statement to us, I was really impressed!
