A girl named Arisa came and stayed with us as an exchange student from Japan.we showed her around melbourne and parts of the city soon after that we played with some dingo puppies at the dingo preservation centre at toolern vale. We let her smell Vegemite, but she didn’t like it!!
She was very good at origami(Japanese paper art) and gave us a frame with all our names on it in Japanese characters (hiragana). We made origami cranes( a Japanese bird) in memory for Hiroshima bombing in ww2. She could also draw beautiful pictures. Arisa only stayed with us for a week and went to school with my sister. We had a great time.
