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.
