the little things in life



What I appreciate after 1 week in Japan... grandma who is always cooking and whom I've never seen outside the kitchen, the fact that more old people ride bicycles then young people, customer service, mister donuts, horned beetles, a warm ocean, straight from the vine watermelon and cantaloupe, Japanese children, vending machines on dark country roads, uniforms for everything, yellow umbrellas, and the snack aisle at the grocery store.

Things that I have not yet learned to appreciate include never ending curvy roads, the smell of fish, tofu, and fuzzy toilet seats.

Wow, how exciting for you all to experience "real" Japan--not touristy, big city Japan! I'm so jealous! The fishiness would get to me for sure, but I can't get enough tofu-yum! I hope you're having a great time. I can't wait to see more photos! Hugs--Teacher Amy
