もうほとんど自分の日記としてこのブログを。。。
今年の初めに訪れた香港、同行の友と共に、それぞれの友達を訪ねるたびでもありました。
私にとっては11年前の、香港滞在の時に世話になった人たちとの再会が何よりうれしく心温まる時間でした。
そのうちの一人、ほんとに優しい、Jennieへ、旅行以来お礼のメールも出さずに失礼していたのがずっと気になっていて今日年の瀬の12月になって
ようやく送った手紙。
酔いながら書いたのできっとめちゃくちゃな英語でしょうが、
返事があるといいなあ


Hi, Jennie,

I hope you are fine. I hesitate to contact you because
I could not send my gratitude while I was in HK after the visit.
I do not have the situation to use English these 4 or 5 years. Maybe that's
why I could not write to you. Please accept my aplogy.

Now it became December, and it is time to think back this year
and think about coming new year.

And I could not help sending you a mail before the end of this year
to say thank you.

It was really good visit to HK because old friends could meet me willingly.
I don't know why but I feel it is a natural to me to see you again.
When I remember when I was in HK in 1996, I always remember
you, Jennie, who was really kind to me.

You did not change you are so kind to me. I was really impressed
that you said to me that shows you seems to know my situation
at that time. Maybe the top of that mountain is a strange place.

And I feel sorry that I could not stay at your home longer.
Your family was very kind and accepted me though it was the
really relaxing time on Sunday afternoon. They made me confortable.
The sweets you cooked was very good. It became one of memorable
taste of HK for me. Thank you!!

Anyway,
if you do not mind, please let me know your home address.
I will send my NENGAJO, "New Year's Card".(in Japanese way)
I am sorry, it will be written in Japanese.
But you can see some pictures of HK in that.
And maybe you could learn Japanese. (laugh)

And I hope you keep to be my friend for the future as well.
There are many differnt things in life between us.
But I think there also may things we can share.

I really feel frustration with lcommunication because I
cannot use English naturally to tell my thought.
But it is OK because you could communicate with me in English.

If you could read this message and send back your mail,
I would be really happy and dance.

Regards,
Mika
