Otherwise, life has been a daily stream of work, yoga, cooking, the occasional shopping trip, dinner and drinks with friends and more work, none of which we take pictures of. We have found a great neighborhood noodle shop that serves huge, piping hot bowls of ramen. They are heaven on a cold night and its a great time for us to practice our slurping technique and Japanese. We've started studying Hiragana, the syllabic alphabet (there are at least 3 other ways to write Japanese, but this is the most necessary to learn). Sunday night we went to a party for a nun to commemorate her 60 years in Japan. Rockin' evening. Actually, it was cool to listen to the stories of a very wise, 86 year old Spanish nun who has made her life starting and running the school we work at now. She is and still kickin' and has a lot of great wisdom to share.

I would post something if there was something exciting to write about or show...but we've been working too much. Worked through our 4 day fall break (workshop), working through Thanksgiving and next Saturday (another workshop) and working for 4 weeks after that until Christmas. You know how we are, we like to really "understand" the local culture. We are going to a Kabuki show on Friday night, so if I can take pictures I'll post those.
