During the first week of my exchange, me and some other Internationals were exploring Kyoto. While crossing an indoor market, a little girl started waiving at us. When we waived back, her mum approached us and asked where we are from. In course of the conversation, she told us that she is from Kyoto and that her daughter’s name is Nana (那奈).
(Like the expression for number 7 in Japanese.) When she saw the Camera hanging around my neck, she asked if I would like to take a picture of them. An opportunity for which I was more than thankful. While taking the picture I instructed my friends to wait for me. That is what you can see on the picture: A group of Internationals standing next to this young local mother and her lil daughter.
