"ladies and gentlement, we are nearing Kansai airport where the outside temperature is currently 39 degrees"

       We made it to Kyoto after a 1.5 hour bus trip from Kansai airport.  The first thing that you notice is without a doubt the temperature which is, well, Dam Hot!  And sticky!  That is still a bit of a shock to the system but I am hoping that I will become at least a little bit more tolerant of the heat.  Anyways, after arriving at Kay's parents we had a good ol' family get together.  Kay's parents, sister, brother-in-law, Nephew, along with the 4 of us. We made Gyoza's, drank beer and had a good laugh.  At least part of that laughter was due to my terribly inadequate Japanese.  I know a little bit but unfortunately I am using the phrases that I know in the wrong situation to everyone else's amusement.  I'm trying though.  So, It was a great night getting to know Kay's family.

  1. I'm glad they are so welcoming...It's must be wonderful to be with a Japanese family. How is little Mya with the heat?
