Happy Thanksgiving!

No, I did not have to have sushi for Thanksgiving this year! Thanks to the splendid hospitality of Tim and Machiko Huggins, whom I met through my bike touring friend, Taniguchi san, I was able to enjoy a delicious "American Thanksgiving" today. It was at the Huggins' chapel/home up on a hill in a town north of Nagasaki. Absolutely beautiful view down into the mountains and sea, and absolutely delightful food and company! I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to share this time with such warm-hearted people. After dinner we went upstairs into the living quarters and it was Christmas! It really felt like home. I think that Mom and Machiko san (she's the one in the photo with me here) would have gotten along really well. Well, I hope all of you share a wonderful day of food, friends, family, and football!
