The hikers are back

It's been a few months since my friend Joe brought any guests to the cottage, but he was back in full form on Sunday with a lovely lawyer from England. His guest has come to Japan many, many times before, but has always been centered in Osaka or Tokyo for business meetings. This week he is experiencing the full extent of the Japanese countryside by climbing up lots of mountains with Joe. Every morning after breakfast I always encourage the visitors who are with Joe to make themselves a couple of sandwiches, take some muffins, bananas etc. with them as Joe has a bit a of problem remembering that he is supposed to feed his guests sometimes! Fortunately they don't usually follow Joe's lead in terms of sandwich fillings though. Yesterday it was peanut butter, apple, raspberry jam and cornflakes....
