Billy's leaving for a business trip to TOKYO! on Monday. Wow! How cool is that? And how I wish I was going with him! (I lived in Japan for 9 months teaching ESL and had good and bad times, but definitely recommend going there whenever possible.) He found this really cute website www.genkijapan.net where you can learn to count from 1 to 20 in Japanese to a hip hop beat. The girls are very fond of it.
I've gotten good practise taking care of the kids without Billy to spell me on our trip to Nana's house, but I think it will still be a long week. I encouraged him to spend as long as he could there so he could see a little bit of Japan beyond the inside of the convention center his conference is in. He's got one extra day and I can't wait to hear what he sees and does in that day. Side trip to Hakone to relax in hot springs and visit outdoor museums? Ride the bullet train past Mt. Fuji? Visit temples and conveyer belt restaurants in funky fun neighborhoods in Tokyo? We shall see.Posted by Bahiyyih at May 6, 2006 08:53 AM
