A New Host Family and A New Experience

Today was my first full day with my second host family. Their names are Richard, Satsuki, and their 5-year-old daughter Mei. They are a very nice and quiet family. Both Richard and Satsuki speak English perfectly and I think Mei spoke pretty well, but she was too shy. I liked them a lot and I think they liked me. They took me to Chichibu (a town near where we lived) to go river sailing. This was a beautiful mountain river and I felt extremely at peace here. We took a bus ride to the river and immediately my host family and I, and the rest of the participants, were loaded into a boat and we pushed off.
