Hi! Can you introduce yourself please?
Uh, my name is, uh, Jamie. I'm living here in Japan, and I'm from Canada.
OK. Where are you from in Canada?
Ah, Vancouver, Canada, British Columbia.
Oh, nice. Were you born there?
Ah, I was born in British Columbia, in Victoria.
Ah, but I spent my adult working life in Vancouver and Japan.
OK. How long have you been in Japan?
Ah, let's see, four years right now, and a grand total of six years.
Wow. How much longer do you plan to stay on Japan?
That's a good question. I ask myself that on a daily basis.
Yeah. Yeah. Me, too. OK. So we'll go ahead and pass on that one. Ah, what do you think about Cananda?
Ah, Canada is a great place. It's a..you know being Canadian of course
I'm a, I'm pretty, fairly nationalistic about it, but uh, it's not a
perfect place, obviously. A lot of high taxes. Not always the job that
you want is available But ultimately it's , you know, it's a pretty good place.
OK. So when you get gray and old, is Canada the place you'll settle down in?
Ah, settle down, that's kind of a hard call as well, but I certainly think of Canada
as being a place I'd like to, I'd like to take it easy on a regular basis.
OK. Great. Thanks a lot Jamie.
OK. My Pleasure.
