Today I was crossing a road by bicycle in Tsukaguchi when I passed a group of high school students that were crossing in the opposite direction. One of them looked at me, smiled and said “Smith” in Japanese. She meant “Mr. Smith”. I guess she thought I was Mr. Smith, which I don’t mind. The fact that she knew the name, which is also part of my school’s name, was great! With a smile, I answered “hello”. Some of them laughed happily because of my friendly response. It was a nice moment. I really like moments like those.
