First of all I came across this interesting poem (by Rose Milligan) that talks about what we do in life and choosing the most valuable. Now I don't have anything against house work and it is very enjoyable and healthy to have a clean environment to work in, and that is what our cleaning inspections try to inspire the missionaries to do, but in the end one must choose priorities in the right order.

Then on the way to Oita, we stopped by the Beppu Aquarium, It is near the bridge, shown here, over to monkey mountain that we had visited before and since it was raining an indoor activity was better. Monkey mountain like so many mountains in Japan is very steep, it would be amazing to walk up them, O wait we have on Mt. Kinpu, and it was steep.
Friday morning we had a traditional Japanese breakfast at the hotel before going to the missionaries appartment for inspection.
