Yesterday our two cultural exchange students from Nagoya Japan were invited to join a Pure Orkney scheduled walking tour for birding, nature and history. In five hours and thirty minutes they covered nearly 16 km of coastal topology.
Masato Nakano (studying economics) and Satoshi Nakane (studying architecture) were impressed by the number of bird species and insightful knowledge about their habits provided by tour leader Stan Groundwater. Our students both agreed that they had lost a little weight and gained much knowledge!
Stan Groundwater issued the invitation upon hearing that the two young Japanese gentlemen were contributing their time to help Kirkwall Grammar School students learn Japanese.
Our thanks to Pure Orkney.
