Late Night News

Tokyo report from teenage son: "The little Japanese speaking kids are so cute, you could eat their cheeks. We chatted to this little 7 year old boy for an hour on the train. He was the cutest thing you have ever seen". "My Japanese is getting so good and we've only been here 3 days. We haven't spoken any English out there". "The girls are so unbelievably pretty, they are 11/10, I can't wait to start school next week". "Everyone is so respectful, even the older generation, they are not nearly as 'sour' as our old people". "You can get ANYTHING from a vending machine". "I am so grateful to be here, so grateful". This is the best, most exciting, unbelievable city in the world". "We personally met the Japanese Prime Minister, at the Sumo". "The people are so friendly!!! ..... the people are sooooo friendly!....and the food is so freakin' unbelievable" ...quote, unquote.

What more does a mother need? My heart is bursting.

Sweet dreams!

  4. Isn't that wonderful! His observations on older people are certainly thought-provoking! I have just been reading Hojoki: Visions of a Torn World, you might like to read it. In one section he says, "And there is a little boy who sometimes visits. When all is still, i walk with this companion. He is ten, I am sixty, so the difference is great." It gives a very different focus on Japan.

  8. He is staying with a family for the second week and going to school for that week. He is not buddied up with anyone from his school and has to live and communicate with that family on his own. He's touring at the moment with about 20 other students from his year and above. A-M xx
