Back from home stay so soon? As the teachers greeted the students, there were many sad faces. Was it because they were sad to see us or they were sad to leave their homestay family? Or both?
We quickly departed for Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. We saw a variety of sea creatures from around the ring of fire. Sea otters, penguins, dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks, oh my!
Next was lunch and shopping at Tempozan Harbor Village. I don't think they've eaten lunch so quickly. The incentive was, the faster you eat the more time you have for shopping.
It's raining, it's pouring...a lot of tears were shed at the Farewell Party by students and chaperones. The last time they saw their homestay family and the last time we saw the teachers.
Finally, back to the hotel for packing and rest from a busy homestay.
Parents, we'll try to post from Narita airport but if we can't. We'll see you in Hawaii.
