Date of activity: July 5th
The day starts off perfectly; rain is pounding down so terribly hard, arriving dry is something only the best accomplish. Today we’re doing the last school-visit of the WCI program this year, so everyone is super excited. The group is divided among the elementary- and junior high school, with eight going to the junior high school. This means that our little group is exactly the same size as the group of students in the whole school. It is actually the smallest junior high school in the prefecture. We spend the day presenting our different countries and learning part of a traditional rice-planting song called taue-hayashi.
I’ll miss going to japanese schools, because the children are truly interested in my dull live. I Love it!
