I am in Japan!!! A long way from Adelaide, Australia, but here I am in Shizuoka for a year teaching at an English Kindergarten while seeing and experiencing as much of this crazy, mixed up, amazing country as I can!
Woohoooo!!! One of my favourite things in Japan and right here in my street!! We had heard about this festival before, but didnt know when it was or anything. To our utter delight we arrived home from kindy on Wednesday afternoon to find vendors setting up stalls and preparations being made for walking on hot coals!!!! Yes you heard right- the very thing that Nigel Smart did that could have cost him his football career! And Marissa and I did it without one blister!! We are now assured to have good luck for a year!
The other photos are from our last long weekend, we drove along the coast to Shizunami and Omaezaki and Hamamatsu, then came back and went out in Shizuoka. Went bowling on Sunday night.
Also- some of my kindy kids, in the classroom and in the playground and assorted other Random Japan photos.
Keep writing me with all your news- whether your buying
houses, winning trophies, having a fantastic night out or even just missing me I wanna know!
Love you all to Australia and back!
