I teach a couple of teenage boys on Fridays, they are great fun and up for anything.  Their last three pieces of homework have been: make the spaghetti bolognese recipe in the textbook (they took a photo of it as proof), go to Burger King to try out the black burgers, do a magic trick and explaining it in English and lastly, do some orgami.  The dragon one took 3 hours!  I’m trying to think what they could do next … perhaps find a dialogue on youtube and they have to act it out?

Walking along to the Seitenkyu Temple today, I passed the Meiji chocolate factory.  Willy Wonka came to mind but I resisted.
