My host Grandmother
My host grandmother is 90 years old! She has next to no English and my japanese is very poor but we still sit and communicate!
Today she taught me some origami and yesterday she showed me a japanese art book with traditional style paintings. I played my concertina for her and she even gave it a shot herself!
We are both keen to learn each other's language although we may be slow. But enthusiasm's all you need to get on with a person who you can't talk to! :)
