Busy Week Two: Stephanie Coil


We got the honor of being invited to attend a Rotary Club meeting as their guests.  Although very few of the members (mostly business men) could speak English, we had a great time.  We had lunch and took turns introducing ourselves.  We experienced a true Japanese tradition:  gift-giving.  We each received a small gift from the Rotary Club, which was much appreciated. 

Also this week we visited Omika elementary school.  We were split into groups and got to spend time with different grades; playing games, sports, and singing songs.  We had a great time eating lunch with the kids and, of course, at recess.
