I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to upload photos from my trip to northern Japan. The main reason is that my laptop has become practically useless and I can’t stand using it anymore. It’s on its last leg and is probably full of viruses and other things. Thankfully I will be getting a new (used) laptop soon so I should be better at updating my blog. For those of you who read my blog, thanks for being patient!
According the stats, a number of people actually read this thing, much to my surprise. Thanks for reading! I will be heading back to the U.S. in five weeks so I am not sure how much longer I will be writing this blog. It’s been fun to keep this and I hope you especially enjoyed learning about Japan.
Here are a few photos from my trip. I would post more but this laptop takes forever to upload photos!
With former English class – from 6 years ago!

With Beniko and her family (friends from Philadelphia who came to Japan for summer vacation)
Yume is like my Japanese little sister
Beautiful Japanese garden in Niigata

I love working with kids here…they are the best! Here are a few shots of my favorite kids.

Recently I’ve gotten to do some fun things…

Ate semi-decent but very small tacos in Japan (350 yen each)
saw fireworks that lasted an hour and a half (but weren’t that good, just LONG)
I’ve been amazed at the Michael Jackson-related stuff here in Japan.
