One event of our trip to Japan in 2007 was a visit to a school!
This is the class I went to, and that is me, June Hymas, in the center
wearing my green silk blouse and my pearls that I just got on a shopping trip.
These students were terrific, so lively and so polite!
You can tell from this picture how much fun I had with them.
