Saturday was also the day we finally got to meet Kristin from Cincinnatti. She was supposed to arrive on Thursday and have three days of crossover with Jo, but she slipped a disk in her back and couldn't even walk on Wednesday so her arrival was delayed to give her some time to rest. She is doing much better now and Megan (trainer from Honbu who used to teach in Inuyama) will come to Inuyama next week to help Kristin out with her first week of classes.

Shirokiya karaoke room
After the party at Al Centro a couple of the students went to karaoke with Jo and me at Shirokiya down the street. We all squeezed into a rather small room (which is normal for Karaoke rooms), ordered some more drinks and more food and started singing. Unfortunately they did not have a book of sung arranged by the English alphabet, like most karaoke rooms do, so Jo and I had a hard time to find some songs to sing. But with the help of our Japanese friends we managed just fine.
A very popular and very crazy English teacher
