When the opportunity comes, please get vaccinated. It will, in the near future, effect travel plans. For some, getting vaccinated is scary but when I first came to Japan, I was told to get vaccinated for Japanese diseases. I thought: “There is no way I can get them I’m not Japanese” (my young mind was talking). Then, I started teaching. Now, kids, they carry all kinds of diseases and germs. I got something called Apple Disease. It has nothing to do with apples. In fact, you become the apple. Your saliva glands swell up, your cheeks become circular and red “apple” You can’t eat, sleep, or drink because it is so painful.

From this experience I learned a valuable lesson, if there is a vaccine, take it!!
