Golden Friday and Paper Critters

26 Aug

And to complete our weekly kanji, we have Golden Friday. This kanji is used in Friday and Gold (think payday), so I think it’s an appropriate character. You know, Friday, end of the week, time to spend money and possibly pick up a paycheck (if your job doesn’t pay you monthly). The other two smaller kanji by the side are Saturday (earth) and Sunday (sun).

When walking with some of the other ALTs in Gunma back to the hotel for orientation, we were accosted (surprised) by hundreds of (fifty, at most) paper critters (paper mache animals). There were pandas, elephants, Pikachus and various others (giant bugs too) and from experience…wow, these were well made! (My paper mache cat looked like a dog, probably because a – I was about 7 years old and b – I decided to have a white cat with black spots). ((sorry it’s blurry))
