This shot is actually in color in case you can’t tell. Today is a holiday in Japan. I think it’s “Thanks for Working People Day” or something like that. I’m about to leave and teach my weekly semi-volunteer English class. Most of the students plus other friends are coming here Sunday afternoon for a Thanksgiving Dinner. We’ll have chicken instead of turkey plus the usual trimmings. I’m really looking forward to it. It looks like we’ll have people from five or six countries (Japan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Ecuador, China, USA…). The woman from Ecuador, who I just met yesterday, says she’ll teach everyone to dance salsa!
