It is hard to write on demand you know.
I tell our friends here that we had the “wild” Japan tour. Up cliffs,
down cliffs, up mountains and down, hiking through the gorge and being
picked up by the ‘cuckoo’ man to be shown the back stage scene of flying
dango. Wasabe land, so green.
Our first Ryokan, scrubbing extra long because you said to…. Claire
saying,” I think we have scrubbed twice as long as anyone else, lets go!”
I liked the food adventure too. Am I the only family member to experience
I was most impressed with the gardens. Any space available had some type
of garden. Flowers and food, I loved walking about the towns.
I would love to live there, if I thought I could ever understand
anything. I was impressed by all the English teachers taking that jump
into such initial isolation.
The trip made me grateful to experience such a place, knowing that it
would not have happened without you. I’m happy to know where and how you
live, meet some of your friends and co workers and students, and see how
much they like you.
And we like miso soup.
