Chizu! So here is the English department at Isahaya Koko. They took me out for a welcome "enkai" (party) which included lots of food and lots of drinking...great fun! I think this is why the Japanese teachers and staff get along so well! Everyone seems to go out to drink and eat (emphasis on the drinking) together often! I thought the Japanese principal we interviewed the last time I was here was kidding - no! What makes for a nice workplace environment? Drinking and karaoke! Really! By the way, Takahama sensei, my supervisor, is the guy in front of me with the tie.
