From Kyoto botanical gardens,

Pratibha wrote, “It was raining cats and dogs that day. Walking around in the rain while worrying about my camera was a miserable experience till I came across these beauties and an elderly Japanese gentleman focusing his prehistoric cam on one of them. Not only was he gracious enough to praise my monstrosity of a digital camera, he also let me see what he had focused on. All this seemed to have taken place in excellent English. It makes me believe that one can cross language barriers if one feels passionate enough”.
You picked up and moved to Japan for science, not knowing a word of Japanese. It only goes to show how passionate you are.
