This is the first post since the last one four years ago so we are rusty. Forgive us our faux pas for there will be many and to add to that we are also working on our new Surface. That’s an extra challenge. We have left our old Thai blog up for those of you that haven’t seen it or don’t have anything better to do on those cold winter nights. Did I mention that its 75 degrees and I’m surrounded by orchids as I write this. Ah Thailand.
We flew into Osaka, Japan to visit with Aya, our Japanese exchange student from three years ago. She had given us strict instructions on what bus to take, where to get on and get off. We could still be fumbling around there if it wasn’t for her. She lives in Kagawa, four hours south and out on a large island. She took us out to her family home and we stayed for two nights. We met four generations of Yokouchi’s with lots of bowing and gift giving all around.
