Konnichiwa! On Friday afternoon while my wife, daughters and I were enjoying coffee and treats at the "Pardon my French" cafe', I overheard four women speaking Japanese behind me. They were surprised to hear me suddenly speak Japanese to them! I presented them my green blog business card; then they consented to being photographed with my cameraphone. All four live in different suburbs in the Twin Cities. Originally, they came from Osaka, Hiroshima, Chiba and Shizuoka. Sayonara!
