I posted a bunch of pix again, so check them out if you're bored!
In other news, we've been doing a lot of stuff with Mary Kay (our new neighbor and L'Shawn's collegue). She's still a newbie here, so we're trying to help her get oriented, and it's also really fun seeing Kobe anew through her eyes. We went for "hanami" (cherry blossom viewing) a couple of times - once with Doug's Japanese teacher and some other teachers and students, and again with some friends. L'Shawn and Mary Kay also did hanami with some Kobe Kaisei teachers. L'Shawn's having a blast back at school, though the first couple of weeks have been a bit stressful.
After many exciting adventures in the hospitals of Osaka and Kobe, Doug has completely stopped snoring, and is feeling a lot better than he has in ages! As an added bonus, he now has his very own Darth Vader mask so he looks SO COOL whenever he's sleeping!
Wow - it's usually a lot longer between posts, so it seems weird, but that's about it!
We'll write again soon. (This was so much easier!) Jaa ne! -> Doug and L'Shawn (^^)v
