My landlord stopped by yesterday with news. He and his family are hosting two Japanese exchange students for a week. The girls are about 10 and 11 years old. I can’t imagine how weird this place will seem to them after Japan – they’ll feel like they’re on another planet. I hope his daughters will get to go to Japan. It will be an amazing experience for all of them. In other news, he’s getting two black and white kittens from the shelter as soon as they’re old enough. I can’t wait to see them.
