Beating the heat!

We lucked out! There was a typhoon on the horizon a few days before we headed up to Tokushima. It miraculously dissipated before we got there. We had a rain free, hot and sunny week to work under and we just did a handbrake skid in sideways arrival back to Okinawa before typhoon 15's presence started to be felt.

Our week was HOT. without a drop of rain from the heavens but we had sound counsel on how to keep our cool.

1. Only walk in shaded areas.

2.When close to a natural water source, get in.

3.If no natural water source is available but there is water provided, get in.

4.Try to drink plenty of fluids even if a friend is IN the water source.       

5.Don't take no for an answer when it comes to getting your fluids despite obstacles.
 We had a teency tiny glimpse of everyday life at Heart Tokushima and were humbled at the fantastic things being achieved there.Susan, Hitoshi, Yamada san, and Tamura san and their wonderful supporters are truly national champions for the furbies that cross their path. Thank you for doing what you do and doing it so well!
