"The Gore trip is for more than just a chat," a close friend of Gore told CNN's John King. "He wouldn't burn that much carbon flying to Chicago just to talk."

Also, posting more pictures to gonnarokuyou today. (Finally.) I came across these two pictures when I was uploading stuff, and thought they were interesting. This is from the school festival a while back. At one point my host family showed up, and I was walking around with Mayumi, Rui, and Mao. I had my camera out, which Rui promptly stole and started taking pictures with. alsdkfj Anyway, apparently this is what I look like to my four year old host brother.
Also, we had lollipops that day, and Rui required that I take a picture of his funny colored tongue. (Mao needed a picture of her tongue too, even though her lollipop had been clear and therefore didn't turn her tongue any color at all.)
