  1. Well done, Bens — and camera woman Emi! Seeing these handmade and natural “works of art” is impressive and gives us all a deeper glimpse into the people and culture of our sister city. Keep up the great work — learning from you is really enjoyable! Best wishes, and a Happy Thanksgiving coming up! Sue
