This morning I had a class in Tokushima City , and this afternoon there was an open class at Lilia’s school, but I came home to track election results. Tears came into my eyes. I was thrilled and relieved and proud to be an American. I wanted to whoop and holler, but there was no one to celebrate with. Most of the people I know around here are either Australian or Canadian – or Japanese, of course.
Nevertheless, I cooked a special dinner and bought a bottle of champagne.
