Thank you, Danke, Merci, Arigato Gozaimas, Kamsa Hamnida

Although it is only the three of us setting off on this trip, we would not have been able to do it without the support and help of many people. We have seen new friendships develop, as well as old friendships deepen with all of the help and encouragment given to us. Thank you for letting us stay in your home, feeding us, taking care of Dylan and listening to the many hours of talking about whether we should make this trip, and how we are going to do it. In fact many of you did all of the above! A huge thank you with bear hugs and sloppy kisses are especially for:

Offering us a place to stay during our two month homeless period: Barbara & John, Scott & Stormie, Lake & Angie, Tina, Amanda & Wendy, Barb, Steve & Annie, Suzanne & Peter, Laura & Don, David & Sally, Toni, Sue & Howard, Ronda & Mark, Bill & Jil, Carole, Mike & Phyllis, Kris & Dorothy, & KB's in-laws John & Mary!

Feeding us: Chris & Michele, Jess & Deb, Daksha & Tom , Don & Laura, Jenn & Gunnar, Toni, Tori & Glen, David & Sally, our wonderful parents, and the gang at Milos (especially for the Key Lime Pie!)

Taking care of our important paper and mail during this huge transition: Kerry & Stephanie

Providing hours of medical advice, especially about all the cool exotic diseases out there! K.B.

Hosting parties, providing valuable travel advice or contacts on the road, giving us help setting up a "world school" cirriculum and mostly listening and providing tons of support: Stephanie & Kevin, Ruby G, Pat, Susi, Lili & Sam, Rhonda, Kim, Sam, Luann, George & Sally, Kris, Dover, Suzanna, Charity, Margie, Bay, Kara, & Tom & Andrea

Moving all of our stuff into storage: John!

Those from ESI: Kim & Pradeep, Steve H., Mahesh, Qi, Steve C, Paul, Richa & Doug.

A special thank you to our brothers and their families, Miles & Joile, Lake, and Marty, Heidi, Sophia and Emilia, for their support and watching the parents (and grandparents) while we're gone!

Best of luck! We'll be keeping tabs.

It was so good to meet you both in MT. I've got a query out to my elementary teacher friend Heather about good places in Japan that Dylan might like to see. I'll keep you posted as I hear.

Bene et pace,
Melissa, Mark, and Solomon Teppo
