Random Thoughts on Japan

*Every year there are about 1,500 small earthquakes, or tremors, all over the country. This will feel familiar after living in Alaska.

*Japanese Children learn two alphabets...and they need to learn about 2,000 characters!!!!! (That laminated card seems like a better idea all the time).

*There are a LOT of Japanese celebrations.

WOW! You got so much done today! Praise God for things to cross off the list! How are the books coming along? EBC need any of them?

I want to send you a trivia thing. A liter (quart) of milk runs between $1.50 and $2.00! Hope it's cheaper on base!!!

Kim - I'd been wondering about that - I'm going to ask our sponsor you're saying $6 -8 a gal? OUCH.

Kim said...

Yep. And, I cant' remember gasoline prices, but - in town, it is sold by the liter too!

BTW - we had a VERY STRONG Jolt yesterday afternoon. Get ready for a bit of rock and roll, kids!
