Friends Coming to Visit

I know how it goes…. everyone says they will visit but no one ever does. Usually. This time I have two adventurous friends making the trip and coming for about a week.

2007.07.29 Friends Coming to Visit

My friend Brigham (right) is coming all the way from Omaha, Nebraska in the United States and Matt (left, notice the NASCAR glass in his hand) is making the short hop from Seoul, Korea where he is also teaching English. Both are friends from college at Iowa State University.

I have a quite a barrage of activities planned up so I hope jet lag is minimal. After exploring my home in Oita we will take a boat to explore Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara. They are due to arrive tonight and might even make the fireworks at a festival in Beppu!

Tyler, we had a loud and thunderous greeting for our Sunday morning…haven’t checked your blog in a while- good news. LY, Jason

Dude – I am such a trend setter. I took advantage of your hospitality months ago!

Stay classy,

hey, I know this is not a right place to just say hello. Anyway, I happened to see your name card you gave to me last night, then I come here and see several of your thousands of photoes. Fun to visit your website. Say hello to you and Dean.

John, you are correct. You were the ground breaker to first test out my tatami.

Zhang, good to hear from you. Thanks for taking a look at my photos!
