Rotary is extremely kind and generous. Unbelievably kind and generous! The stuff they organize for us must cost a fortune, and yet they expect us to pay nothing, then go so far as to THANK us for being an exchange student!? Like no, THANK YOU! Thank you so much for giving me the most wonderful year of my life and not expecting me to pay for the incredibly costly trips you organize for us! During one trip, we went to an old train station where you can write your wishes on bamboo and hang them up with everybody's wishes. Nearby is this random broken giant bear who just hangs out among some trees. A little while away is a beautiful waterfall. That's where the third picture was taken.
