Here for a good time, not a long time.

We had been gone for around half a year when we returned to Nagoya on April 26th. In our time we visited 6 countries that neither of us had ever been to before, and spent time with our friends and families in Florida, Toronto area, and Vancouver. The most difficult part about coming back has been trying to remember how to speak Japanese! Fortunately our many good friends here have helped us comfortably get used to life in Japan again.

Friends like...

Medama no Oyaji! This little guy loves us. He seems to show up at all of our big parties.

This is Yukiko with "Tomato" (or Tomohiro). He's Japanese, but his English is great. Of course Yukiko's English is great too; she teaches at Meijo University in Nagoya!

Here I am with Colin. Hmm, I think Colin has had a couple drinks. Oh well, we'll forgive him since he's such a nice chap. Also, he gave me this crackin' party shirt!

Some of the finest English teachers in Ichonimiya and Nagoya.

So far I'm having a great time catching up with my friends and students here. Many people have been asking me how long I'll be in Japan. The answer is: I don't know exactly yet, but around 2 months. Tara and I will be returning to London, Ontario in July and going to school again in September. So for those of you in Japan, I hope we get to have some good times together for the next two months. Those of you in North America can expect me back later this summer (ready for ball hockey).
