Nishinoshima Sports Festival

Nishinoshima Sports Festival - 17

3 countries are represented by the people in this picture - Roger (left) is from Australia, Vivek (center) in from Canada and I'm a damn American. Actually, 4 countries if you count the ridiculous Scottish cap that Nigel put on my head.

But in Japan we're all just "gaijin" - the colloquial term for non-Japanese people, but mostly applied to Westerners.

This was at the BBQ party out on Nishinoshima in the Oki islands off the coast of Shimane. Internationalization - grass roots style.
