Sarah has been in Japan for a week now and is having the time of her life! We didn't hear from her for almost a week, but finally did last Monday. She really enjoyed the couple she stayed with in the first town. She also had a host sister who she really got along with and showed her a lot of the town and about the history of it to that she was in. They also helped each other out with each others language. She tried some sushi, specifically eel and octopus. She didn't much for either one, but at least she tried it. Sarah also got to wear a kimono which she said fit very tight but was fun, she also wore the traditional makeup that goes with it. She is now with her second family in the second city she is visiting who are a little more traditional, so she is having to deal with that a little bit.
Have to admit we were sitting on pins and needles for awhile until we finally heard from her, you know, typical parent worries. But, in short we a so glad that she is enjoying the experience in Japan!

My daughter, Sarah is on her way to Japan this very moment. I am very excited for her and this opportunity to experience life in another country. She will be gone for 18 days. For me that will seem a very long time, but you have to let go at some point. I will be posting pictures of her adventure as she sends them to Cathi and I.
