Mr Mandegan,thank you very much for the information and for the japanese lesson.Japan is a wounderful and astonishing colourful country also in a Winter season. I hope to come back again in Spring, but I'm sure that whenever I come back i will feel again the same emotion. Wher do you come from? I come from Sicily,(Milazzo) "the earth of the sun", and You come from the earth of the rising sun. The sun join us. ciao, Dino
