Today was my last full day in Japan. In the morning I biked to Hannan and delivered my farewell speech to the teachers, said goodbye to everyone (and everything) else, including my desk that I spent hours sitting at. At 9.30am I went to Karita Primary School, as was organised, where I taught three second year classes. These students were all about 6-7 years old, and very cute!

While walking the streets, I stumbled across the local batting cage, which appealed to me because I haven’t swung a bat in about 8 months. I plunked down 1000 Yen for 3 sessions of 30 pitches. When I got in the cage, I was looking at a 5 foot tall LED display of a pitcher, going through his motion, and then when he was about to throw, the ball came winging out of a small hole ...
