Here are a few snaps of the end-of-term party forShinden. We went to a restaurant and had a beautiful multi-course meal with all-you-can-drink beer and sake for 90 minutes. As you can imagine, everyone got quite drunk. They also lost their inhibitions, and I was inundated with people coming to chat to me, many of whom I had barely spoken to all term. It was great! Afterwards a few of us headed to a local bar for a few more drinks before making our way home.
The two guys on the far right of the below picture at the Vice Principal (glasses) and the “No. 4” – the class scheduler. They are both moving to work on a school on a small island south of Nagoya. A few feathers havebeen ruffled asYokoiSensei (No. 4) is jumping up two places to No. 2 (Vice Principal), but since the two are good friends it’s not that surprising they’d move together. I think they’re going to have a fun and easy life there!
