Trying to get back to my 3 day a week blogging world.
wahahahahahahaha we shall see.
Back to life in Japan.
As many of you know I have a son who lives in Japan with his family
and quite fabulous extended family.
He is the head of the International Exchange Center at his University.
He is in New Zealand right now at his University's building connected to Christchurch University.
All the students have to spend a month in New Zealand, immersed in English and their field of study.
But there is fun time also. Lots of outdoor time, shopping (of course), horseback riding, hiking
what ever fun activity is in season.
One of these fun time was a class in surfing two weeks ago at Sunner Cliffs Beach.
Of course this was exactly where the epicenter of the 5.9 earthquake was.
Son was walking back with lunch and he saw and felt the earthquake.
Quick note: all my children grew up with earthquakes when we lived in California.
So this is/was no big deal for him or even the students.
But he did mention that this was the first time he felt the earth liquify.
It feel like the ground beneath his feet felt like jello.
More earthquake !
When he left to pick up lunch for the class, four of his students were surfing.
But the teacher and all the class were found and everyone was fine !
Are they not darlin'
This photo makes me smile everytime I see it !
And of course just because I can here is your mid-week pretty.
Vietnamese Asparagus and Steak Salad.
Quick easy and so very good.
Plus the sauce you make for the salad was made with lime juice, fish sauce and sugar, no oil
but I must say I added a few drops of sesame oil.
Just because I love the flavor with this salad.
