On Saturday we drove to Okayama.
Here in Akitakata we have got so much help from Kaz, who we now count as one of our brst friends here. He works for the city and is always ready to help us, he for example told me about the japanese class I go to every week. His wife Susan works in Okayama and one of her co-workers is Magnus, who happens to be Icelandic! So on Saturday we drove there with Kaz, it takes just over 2 hours. We met up with Susan and went to meet Magnus and his family. His wife Naoko and their two daughters Soley and Salome who are 4 and 8. Margret was in heaven with two older girls to play with and loved every minute of it. We stayed for dinner, which was wonderful, I even got icelandic Liquorice.
After this lovely visit we stayed at Susan's place in Okayama for the night and the next morning we went to the zoo before driving home.
All in all a wonderful weekend and we will most likely be visiting Okayama again :)
