Atul and his host, with a "welcome" sign on front, and a handwritten farewell message on the back:
Daniel playing a farewell song for us . . .
and with our KJ hosts
The families stocked us up with lots of snacks, but the senseis are sure that their dried persimmons from Ogi Sensei were the best. Just when all those were gone, Uncle Shiro Yokota showed up at Narita airport with giant bags of snacks for everyone!
Because of our fabulous exchange rate this trip, some trippers had money to take home -- and others were counting their final coins to see what they had left.
Thank you to all who have been following our blog posts, a very special thanks to our various sponsors and supporters, and a most sincere "お世話になリました” to our KJ hosts!
Please keep checking back -- we'll keep adding photos to earlier entries as well!
Everyone's (?) back in school today !
