I will leave Imaichi and Japan today. Listen to this+ It will be a very FAST flight. I leave Tokyo at 4+20 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17, and I arrive in Rapid City at 4+50 p.m. the same day! How:s that for record speed? How can that be possible?
I will be sad when I leave my new friends. The Japanese
have been unbelievably kind to us. They are very generous and have
treated us like very special guests. The only Japanese word I knew
last month was *Sayonara.* That means *Good-bye,* but it means a
good bye for a long time. I do not want to use *Sayonara,* because
I want to see these friends again. So, I will say, isntead, *Mata
Aimasyo,* which means *Goodbye, but I will see you again soon.* When
we have Japanese visitors in Rapid City I hope you will get to meet them.
They are very kind and friendly people. Good^bye from Japan!
See you in Rapid City!
