- California born by a Cuban mother, married to a Japanese man, and have lived in Japan since 2004, minus one year living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have friends and family in many places in the world. I dreamed of traveling to many distant lands, creating music and dancing to it, meeting interesting people, and discovering treasures in the most unlikely of places.

Sports Day Preparation
These past few weeks have been very busy at school! We are preparing for the annual Sports Day Festival, something that happens at every school in Japan. The students are put through rigoruos, sometimes dangerous, always trying, training. In the hot sun, they train themselves for weeks to compete in teams in the "Undokai". It always gives me new respect for the Japanese. Their patience and endurance is tested begining at an early age.
