Calendar of the village of James Thera The day before yesterday, I received a calendar for next year from the village of James Thera (Ouchenbele) in Scotland, where I visited in August. From Jenny, the first woman I met in the village when I first went there 19 years ago. The student with glasses on the right is Jenny, and the one on the left is Patricia, the proprietress of the pub. The letter said something like this: ～～ Takeshi, thank you for the many books and tea the other day. It's a very beautiful photo. You can understand the state of Sri Lanka well, such as James Taylor's tea garden and where he lived. We are very proud that you brought his legend to this village. Is Dimbula your shop? I'd like to see it~ I'm going to enjoy brewing J.Terra's tea in a teapot with Patricia for Christmas. I don't know if they celebrate Christmas in Japan, but if they do, I would be very happy if you could do it at the same time as us. The calendar is from Ouchenbele, a village in Thera. Inside is a photo of a rainbow taken by my 14 year old niece. When she was driving with her father, she happened to come across this rainbow and yelled "Stop!" and took the picture. Did you see a rainbow like this too~ I hope you have a very happy new year~. After I got to know James Taylor, he introduced me to people in this village and gave me many encounters in Sri Lanka. I have only been to the village of Auchenbele twice, and I would like to return home someday instead of Thera.
