    ... Here, we took 3 lifts to finally get to the top of this mountain. We climbed (LITERALLY) on wooden planks and stairs for about 3 hours. We stopped to have lunch. Rice balls and other little snack items. Carolyn and I rocked out some CMU and Tigers gear. We saw some amazing views and even got to have a snow ball fight in the snow!!

    ... He is from New Zealand and was a teacher in New Zealand. It also blew my mind when he said that students touch him all the time boys and girls and they touch where every they feel like it. (yes that includes private parts) I would not be happy. Touching my hair is ok, other body parts, not so much. We also made plans with Mr. D to have a drinking night out in Japan. Can't leave without checking out the local scene a ...
