Day 14: Homeward Bound

Our final morning in Japan was filled with many tears. Handsworth students joined their Inage hosts for two morning English conversation classes before heading to the school auditorium to await the final transfer. A newspaper article had made it into the local paper about our visit to see Chiba’s mayor. As the bus pulled up we took one last photo on the steps of Inage High School. 15 minutes of teary good-byes later we finally got the last Handsworth student on the bus for the airport. It’s been a remarkable two weeks, and indeed a remarkable exchange experience spanning all the way back to October. Today we are on our way home!

And here’s one last parting gift… a final video!
