Happy Birthday Mom!!! And happy birthday Andrew.
I called my mom 3 different times today. Once for her birthday on Japan's time and twice on Jamaica's time.
I went to church today at a different location, the same place where I held my party. I then basically spent the rest of the day in my apartment.
Chinese Navy ship to visit Japan
The visit of the Zhenghe to the port of Kure, Hiroshima Prefecture, will be only the second by a Chinese naval vessel in recent times as the sides seek to overcome lingering mistrust.
Many Chinese continue to resent Japan's brutal invasion of much of the country, while some Japanese are wary of China's rise as a regional military power alongside its growing economic clout.
Commanded by Rear Adm. Liu Yi, the navy's deputy chief of staff, the ship will first call at the South Korean port of Chinhae on Thursday, the official Xinhua news agency reported Friday.
The ship's complement of 365 will include 230 cadets from four academies under the People's Liberation Army Navy who will carry out a series of exchanges with their South Korean and Japanese counterparts, the report saidhttp://search.japantimes.co.
