Staying and training

Transfer calls were today, and I am doing the second half of training for a Japanese elder who was going to go to Orem, but is serving here while he waits for his (travel) VISA. 

I'm staying in the same area. What's really interesting though is that the elder I'm finishing up training is Elder Shohei Yoshida from the Koiwa ward in Tokyo stake, someone I worked a lot with for two transfers while I was in Urayasu and Adachi.

more about the crash.... ;)

as for the crash details.... 

I was going down a fairly steep hill, and this kid pulled out on his bike in front of me. I didn't want to hit him, and I didn't want to lose speed and get hit from behind, so I went for the next gap between the curbs and tried to hop onto the sidewalk. The accident happened because I misjudged the distance between the curbs, went over the handlebars, but also managed to tie my right leg with my bike lock to the handlebars. Left ankle was slightly swollen, left hip was slightly bruised, left elbow was slightly scratched up, and all in all it was fun.  Helmet's fine, and my companion did not wreck. At the time of the crash I was on companion exchange.
