Alphorns in front of Milky House

Kai, my colleague who only last month moved
hundreds of miles from Fukuoka and is now living with her
family in a tent whilst they build their house!
This place gets more like Switzerland every day! The traditional way to say goodbye to our guests - an Alphorn Quartet!
The Milky House pose
This bunch were a right handful...
These schoolgirls were completely uncontrollable...
...here I am in their midst doing my Japanese pose
Derek performing live on the roof of Milky House
My Sensei's
Derek (Canadian) was painting the roof today, which was a little tricky as the heat kept on welding his shoes to the sheet metal...
Kai and Eiko my colleagues and friends
He learnt to play by practising every day in his bus after his family had started complaining

The Owner, Yasuhiro, announcing that lunch is ready


And then, last night saw the return of Joseph to the stage to teach Border Morris Dancing to the youth of Japan, to try to convince them that not all English are hooligans. This time I was fortunate enough to have a dance partner - Adam - who came here from America (via Italy) to learn a little bit more about Japanese cuisine... and Morris Dancing. With enough sticks, bells and hankies for all we made a right racket as we performed a simple five-part dance that Adam and I had created earlier in the day. (I'm in pink, Adam is in yellow.)

preparing for the dance
and off we go!
raise your sticks!
Adam and I demonstrating the skilled art of Morris Dancing
This "Ranch" girl was quite a handful, attempting to break my stick in half...
not quite sure what I'm doing here. Adam reminds me of Lenny out of "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck here!
The gang
