Osaka Midori Elementary part 2 June 29, 2010 19:29

Time is short this morning, but I didn't want to start my day without posting some more pictures from Osaka Midori Elementary.  I'm a bit behind in my days, so I'll be playing catch-up for a while. I'm already back in Tokyo, and I visited several places after this.  More on that later.

The point of this post is to bring you some of the images we captured on our visit to this beautiful school.  Whatever they're doing there, they're doing it right.  These kids were amazingly talented, and just glowed with enthusiasm.  We spent the morning talking with as many as we could while they worked on their drawings of dragons.  A testament to how fun this all was for us, is that Dean forgot how hot it was while he was making his rounds.  I think it was actually hotter and more humid there than in Florida.  No one else there seemed to notice.  If we ever need to colonize the planet Mercury, these kids would be a good choice.

As usual, our visit was too short.  Before we left we were presented with several gifts.

But the memories of that day are the most enduring gift of all.  We can't thank them enough.
