In the previous post I did not include the detail that Hoitsu and Shungo Suzuki were in the building last night and this morning - on their way to Colorado for their third Mountain Seat of the year already (this may be another record). As Daigan commented this morning, it was quite a sight to have them and Reb sitting in the student lounge, where the doors were wide open to let in the morning sun, and since they were about to leave, I ran to get my camera.
Blanche, Christina and Reb
Shungo, Reb and Hoitsu
All of the above plus Yuto, who is acting as jisha and interpreter
