Japanese people are overjoyed that Tokyo is going to get the Olympic Games in 2020. This reminds me of the announcement in 1993. We stayed up all night and then we heard that the Games for 2000 were going to be in “Syddeney”. What immense joy! We celebrated by going to a joyful parade in Sydney. Our granddaughter Natasha turned two at this time of the year. Our daughter Monika was happy to let us take little Tashi along on the train to Sydney to watch the parade. Our daughter Caroline came along too with us. This week Natasha is going to be 22! Last year she had a big party for her 21st birthday.
