Meet Grennie. She's an international student living in Kyoto and quickly becoming an expert on Japanese culture. Why don't you visit her website and find out what she's up to these days? I'm sure she would be happy to receive your comments.

Wow, what a day! So many new faces and interesting stories. I even began teaching a class that wasn't even mine! Those students were as confused as I was, no doubt. Well, make sure you all bring your photos in next week so I can learn your names faster. See you next week.

On a recent trip to Northern England, I stayed overnight at a cozy B&B, run by a very friendly family. In the dining room several beautiful flowers were resting on the table. I soon discovered that the flowers were made of sugar, which was a hobby of the woman who lived and worked there. Those flowers looked so real. I couldn't believe it.

The cherry blossoms are out. It's such a beautiful time here in Kyoto. I especially love to watch the petals fall off the trees during the last few days of the viewing season. It looks like pink snow. See some photos here and here.
