|Yasuyo-san and Jennifer|
I guess the day after my mother-in-law's birthday was another quiet day because I only have one picture that I took.
My mother-in-law used to teach English classes for the YMCA. After she retired from that she had at least two free-lance classes she taught with two different sets of students. When she retired from those, around the time she turned 85 or so, she still had a lot of those students who would come and visit her at the apartment or she took on new students. All these students were middle-aged or older. Everyone from housewives to a man who was a silk merchant in Paris, to a woman whose husband was high ranking general in the Japanese army. These people I remember from my last trip here 11 years ago.
