I did mention our group consisted of twenty-one girls. That's twenty-one cute girls. There were several boys we encountered who were very interested in some sort of cultural exchange. Luckily, we also had a cadre of very diligent chaperones!
By the way, if you want to see a few photos from our trip, we've got some posted on Flickr.
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the New Era and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
