Chasing the Cherry Blossoms: Week 1 of the Adventure
2010 Note from the Author The cherry blossom front is early this year. If this had been the case 10 years ago, I would have enjoyed flower viewing families from day one. But it was not to be for me in the year 2000. While I saw the occasional petal with a blossom, there were no parties in Kyushu. But there was plenty to do and see and learn.
