もっと弟!(More of my little brother)

Although I moved in with my host family about a week ago, I’ve just received from my previous (host) parents a CD of pictures that they took during my time with them. I can’t resist posting a few more here to show off my little brother, Rinta!! Also, one of the major perks of a professional photographer host-father: high quality photos.

From the major gift-giving session on my last night. In case you didn’t notice, he wore the Red Sox jersey I brought him as an おみやげ (omiyage, a gift, usually given after traveling)! 

The following are a few other fun pictures from my time with Rinta and the Fukuda family.

One of many delicious dinners made by Fukuda-san (my most mother). She’s an incredible cook!!! Exhibit B:

Unreal!

Studying together in our ゆかた (yukata, summer kimono). During my last few days, the Fukudas gifted me this beautiful blue yukata. Jeez, what a wonderful host family!!
