How wonderful to see you here. Nice surprise. At this moment Koichi is on the farm with the family and there is a lot of rain, but not too cold. We will be seeing them all next week. We are making Apple crumble from Apples from the their trees. As you can see, we're busy building our home and garden and this year have had plenty of vegetables and herbs. The soil is fantastic here for cultivating and we expect to grow much more next year.
We are online almost every day, even from our mountainside in the middle of nowhere, and can get in touch via UHF Radio, but only if absolutely necessary... a hotel we know has a radio that Koichi contacts for such thing as a ride back and to from the village.
The land he has bought is in a most beautiful location, with glorious views, and next spring he should be able to plant nice gardens also.
