Lions 7

This is Takashi Koyanagi. He is standing at the Clyde lookout, on a fairly cold late winter day.
Takashi was staying with us as part of the Lions Youth Exchange program. He comes from Fukuoka in Japan, and is sponsored by the Fukuokahana Lions Club.
I think Takashi enjoyed his stay. I know he was cold at times, but he did get to see and do quite a few things he would not be able to do at home.
This program of exchanging students between counties seems to me to be a very good one. While there were some language barriers, eventually every one learned something. Takashi is keen to return here 'in the summer' and I hope he does.
