My 1st Japanese friend!

Last weekend, Jess and I went shopping at Nampodong and stopped to eat some kimbap at a local street vendor. While we were there, we met 2 Japanese guys who had been traveling through Korea for a week and it was their last day before they flew back to Japan. One of them took a picture with us and offerred to send it if we gave him our e-mail. I just received it this morning! This is what his e-mail said:

"Hello. How are you? Do you remember me? MY name is RYO MIHARA. It was happy to meet in the stall the other day. It was lucky because that day was a day of the South Korea end. Did you come to Japan? I live in Shimonoseki. Yes, kanpu-ferry terminal in shimonoseki. If you come to Japan, please send E-mail. I will guide you. Season today Japan's cherry blossoms are very beautiful. I want to meet slowly this time in South Korea or Japan and to talk again. See you."

As a side note: This is about as good as it gets when it comes to people speaking English. It's really broken and sometimes very funny, ie: "I want to meet slowly this time." Last night Kevin had to go to the bathroom and Stella said, "There is not a bathroom near here. Can you endure?"
