on sunday we met up with
some friends in nara.
we know them from
edmonds community college
where we were conversation partners
with a class of japanese foreign exchange students.
thanks to the magic of facebook
we've stayed connected.
we jumped into our friends car and told them to show us some
of their favorite sights.
the first was a ninja museum
where we saw a ninja performance
(where they demonstrated several different ninja weapons)
as well as a traditional ninja house,
where we got shown all the intricate hiding places
ninjas would create.
it was definitely geared towards children,
there were even little "ninjas"
running around everywhere,
but every adult was having just as much fun...
