Hi friends! I haven;t posted in a little bit, so I thought I'd give a quick update. The strangest things seem to happen here. Here's the details of our morning. We left Hakone (unfortunately) at 5:30 am to visit the Odawara Fish Market. It was crazy hectic at that hour. After we had breakfast Tory was looking out the window and spotted this really cool "go-cart" in the lot below. We left the fish market and drove down a beautiful street lined with cherry trees almost in full bloom. We pulled over to take some pictures, and 5 minutes later this cool "go-cart" drives down the street and pulls over next to us. The man gets out starts telling us about his car and lets us takes pictures and he even let Fernando and I sit in the car. It wasn't actually a go cart, but a kit car. Sweet! We all thought our Rotary friends knew him - but NO, he just stopped. Talk about Karma. If that wasn't strange enough, a woman comes out of her house and she recognizes who we are - the family is in the Rotary. So she invites us in for green tea and some sweets. She learned we are headed out on the train to Yokosuka so she gives us snacks and then a special gift of a hand carved wooden spoon and hashi (chopstick) rest. It was completely surreal. Amazing people, amazing adventures.
