On Monday I went over to Mae and Joe's leaving party. I dont know them well, but they are some of the only Japanese people I do know! Which is a shame that they are leaving, but in reality, they are going to a pretty cool place. Near to Mt. Fuji they are making an "all-English" village. With English being spoken and English signs and stuff. It will be
really interesing to see. Ayako also came, with her daughter Yukimi, who is just a sweetie. She must be about 7 now, and always looks after Mae's daugher Yu - always carting her around on her back and being silly. Yu is quite shy, so it's always nice when she comes out of her shell. They loved me taking photos of them!
