Ryuko-san, left, dropped by with Tono’s Tennessee friend Parker J. Allen, who’s visiting this week. We had the good fortune to meet Parker, along with a lot of other fine folks from Chattanooga, Tennessee, only days after Chizuko and I first arrived in Tono last summer at the event where Chattanooga and Tono were officially joined as sister cities. Here’s a brief clip from that event:
Here’s a photo from that event, that’s Ryuko holding the banner. Directly above her, Strat Parrot, and to his left, Mayor of Chattanooga Andy Burke.
