When that exchange involves food, all the better. :)
Last week at Okawame Jr. High School, I learned how to make udon noodles from scratch by participating in a 7th grade home economics class.
Let me share my new culinary knowledge with you:
First, you make dough from flour, a little salt and some water. You form the dough then roll it out and fold it over. Next, you have to cut the dough into thin strips to make noodles.
Tah dah! Time to eat...
The guys weren't too keen on being in this picture. (Maybe because they were wearing aprons?) :) Notice the boy drinking his soup. This is totally normal in Japan. Whenever I tell my students that eating soup this way is considered rude in America, they usually go, "Hehh??!?"
