Happy New Year!
Hi everyone, Happy New Year! Wow…2008 certainly came around quickly. I celebrated the New Year eating cheese fondue at my friend’s house. Just after midnight, we walked to the Hokkaido Shrine. I was very surprised that there were so many people there! I threw some money and said a prayer and ate chocolate coated bananas. Tomorrow I’m off to Furano to enjoy a couple of days snowboarding. It will be my first time to visit so I’m very excited. Apparently the hotel I’m staying at serves delicious seafood too. See you all on the 4th. I hope you enjoyed your New Year!
