Here we are at a toilet break when this lovely lady comes over after having driven past us in her car with her elderly mother on the ascent of the mountain pass to give us a drink of green tea. It was the mother who gave me her carrot juice.
She spoke some English explaining that it was ‘childhood day’ today in Japan as part of Golden Week. We are yet again humbled and educated in hospitality, manners and politeness.
And Yasmin is so much better.
