We're not in Japan yet, but we've made plane and ryokan (inn) reservations. And I'm giving exams in Japanese and thinking about getting to hear Japanese again full-time. Laura has been working with the Rosetta Stone Japanese program to re-activate her language ability. She calls me up periodically and says, "I remember; I remember!"
Departure will be June 17th, two days after school gets out, for me. On the one hand, I'm not sure how we'll manage to get ready in time, and on the other hand, I wish we could go tomorrow. Japan will be our Bo-nen-kai, our end-of-academic-year party.
