Watanabe House, Tokyo

Today I met with all the other interns, including the two new ones from Australia, Stuart and Janet.

Got a big box kite in the mail. It's a wonderful kite, though the middle of Tokyo is not particularly the best place for kite flying. That didn't stop Stuart, Emma, and I from running around with it on a big patio in front of the Tocho. Kites like this are quite rare in Japan, as I understand it, and crazy foreigners sporting one in the middle of Shinjuku is an even rarer sight. The patio was sorta sunken and surrounded by trees, so it wasn't windy enough to really get up. Oh well, we still had fun.

Yea! You're posting again! Looks like I have some reading to do! This is a fun time for a mom in the Midwest whose longest trip this year was to St. Louis. :) Janet
