Yamaguchi's answer to the World Cup
Last weekend was the soccer tournament in Awajishima (an island close to Kobe). About 12 teams from Western Japan came out to compete, and what do u know??? Yamaguchi girls placed 2nd (only to be beat by those biznatchies Osaka..i am a good sport most of the time, but they were such animals on the field)!!! As my luck goes, I sprained my ankle on the very first day, during the very first game on a team that wasn't even mine (i was helping Shimane team by subbing..i guess this is what i get?! hehe). The weekend was highlighted by some good onsen action overlooking the longest suspension bridge in the world (the one connecting Shikouka island to the rest of mainland Japan). The little cute naked girl following me to speak English was a cool bonus too. As usual, we spent Sat. night hanging out, and playing dubious drinking games where some secrets were revealed, some nasty concoctions were drunk, and pool tables were danced on. Even if my ankle puffed out like a hot marshmallow by the end of the weekend, it was well worth it!
P.S. Can you spot "the hairy caterpillar" in the picture?
