Farewell at Ajigasawa Station - only 9 trains a day
I love our short term workers. Its kind of hard to say good-by to them - and, of course, I'm always glad to welcome them back.
The supply seems to be drying up though... sacrificed to the latest fad in missions I guess. Now we only get the special cases, like Matthew, who have just a narrow window of time or some other special consideration.
The trend is all toward teams - a subject much too volatile for me to broach today. Suffice to say that I really miss all those UK gap year students that we used to get every spring and summer!
