Geographically Challenged Students
A lot of my students have never been outside of Japan. Many of those who have, have only been to Hawaii, Saipan and Guam.
One of my students today told me one of his dreams is to go to Australia and drive around. He particularly wants to see the Grand Canyon.
There was no way I could break it to him gently that his geography was just a little bit totally crap!
I was, of course, kind enough to show him WHERE the Grand Canyon is!
Oh, and I ate a lightly sugared little fish (about 2cm's long) today. It was in a bag of mixed Chinese crackers, nuts and stuff. The outside of the fish was sweet. The inside rather chewy. It wasn't the pleasantest of experiences, but I've had worse.
