Thousands of Miles from Home


Bronze, Silver, and...

It’s been a grueling week; a week of pollen allergies, school physical checkups, extensive bike rides, and heated mahjong battles. But finally, the climax manifests itself as the unstoppable, overlapping block of holidays known simply in Japan as “Golden Week.” A time for me to get out of this small town and see the sights, lights, and fights of “big city” Japan.

In other words, and barring physical injury, a journey to the heart of the Rotary Exchange Student Dream.


  • What might that dream be? I don't remember reading about it in the paperwork.

  • Hi Benjamin, there is an Austrian saying (my humble translation) “sometimes speaking is silver, silence is golden”. So I hope you have a jolly good week and do not give away all your secrets! ;-) Cheers, Bibi.
    PS: Your host parents look very cute and cosy!
