Katya and I left the hotel and visited my parents in Shimosuwa to say Happy New Year and to receive Maya-san.
Maya-san was happy to see us for the first time this year.
Mom prepared new year dishes for us.
We got full. I thank Mom. She always cooks good meals for us.
We left Shimosuwa. No sooner than we arrived at our apartment in Kofu, we took Maya-san out for our first walk together.
In this way, our year 2011 started.
