Hi! How have you been? I'm fine.

As you know, G20 summit was held at the end of June in Osaka. I had expected it to be busy at commuter time, so I had left my apartment earlier than usual. However, it was very quiet on the train! I was kind of deflated.
Since many leading figures were close to my area, I was feeling somehow strange.

I had read about this G20 on the magazine called English Journal beforehand, and it said that presidents would discuss(talk) about some topics, such as environment of the earth, artificial intelligence, robotics, and digital taxation. All topics were interesting, however, I haven't traced the content of the conference yet!

Anyway, I was relieved that it was over without any accidents. :)
こんにちは、元気ですか?私は元気です。

ご存知の通り、6月末に大阪でG20が開催されました。通勤時間は混むと予想していつもより早く家を出ましたが、電車はとてもすいていて、なんだか拍子抜けでした。
たくさんの主要人物が近くにいると思うと、なんだか変な気分でした。

今回のG20では、地球環境やAI、ロボット工学、デジタル課税などについて話し合われるとEnglish Journalという雑誌で読みました。全て興味深い話題ですがまだ会議の内容がどんなものだったのか調べていません。

無事終わって、ホッとしました。
