We were invited to the Namekis on Sunday for the "uchiage" of our seminar's activities in the JIU festival. We were so fortunate to have the chance to enjoy some opera singing by soprano Ando-san. She has such a beautiful voice and besides singing to us, she also taught us how to better use our voice. We thank the Namekis for the "osekihan" and other food they prepared for all of us.
|Happy Birthday, Greg! Happy Belated Birthday, Kashiwa-san!|
|With gratitude for the warm hospitality--always!|
