Last day In Murayama . In morning was planned helping with picking Aubergine , but i slept in , so no Aubergine picking for me , then at 8:30 am there was an opening for the day at Murayam festival .
Started with dance .
Around 10 am i was back at home and decided to skip middle of the programs and go straight for the end . Around 14 dancing groups going around the few blocks and dancing ...
SO there i was naked in the Onsen , watching the plane fly above . You could see river down hill and stars around . I was the only person in this Onsen bath . Feeling was ..can not describe in words , they say that Japanese people live longer ...I agree .. They have Onsens !
Its the most relaxing place
. One old Japanese man once said to me : " All day we work hard and speak a lot , but in Zazen , Onsen and tea party we relax and dont speak ...
AFter onsen i had to wait for guys for few minutes and we were on our way back home . As soon as we got back , they decided that could be a good idea to eat Indian food.
Indian cafe was nice. It had options with sitting Japanese style or western at table (hIgh and low tables ) . I had just snacks and thats it ..
Black tables with red chopsticks just matched...with the red-ish carpets !
Later on at home i finished packing and looked back at all the amazing photos from the day and just had a lough with everyone in the house .. It was a great day .. These people have showed me the world that otherwise i would never see .They teach me many lessons i take with me today ... while sitting in the car and writing this post : 25 August 2014 (11:56 AM )
Around midnight i finished my guest house - guestbook letter and went to bed .. All i needed is a second and i was out .. Had early morning to starting to pick Nasu for the last time and head to Tokyo to stay with another family !
