Short post, but I just want to let everyone know that I'll be leaving tomorrow to spend the weekend in Kyoto. Steven and I are going to be going on a crazy adventure up Mt. Koya, basically.

Expect pictures and a long post sometime early next week.
Not much else to report, but I had penmanship today, and Sekihara-san's husband came, and Nakano-san pronounced his characters "manly," at which Sekihara-san announced that he writes manly characters "because he is a woman."

...yes, my handwriting looks like a little kid's.

Spacing? Who needs spacing?
On a final note, Sara wrote up a post about Okinawa as well, which has potentially the most attractive picture of the Fulbrighters ever.
