Oｈ ! My God Story NO. ７1
An American house and a Japanese house
Americans love to have parties at home.
I have invited people to my home and have been invited as a guest.
The family I was recently invited to was in the suburbs of New York.
It's a wonderful area called Long Island.
He has a regular job and lives in a big house.
He is American and his wife is Chinese.
They have two daughters, a little girl and a ten years old sister.
He welcomed the guests with his wife's delicious home made cooking.
She baked a cake, too.
By the way, my impression was that an American house was big.
There was a thirty meter pool in his garden.
Five different kinds of dogs were running around in the garden.
There were a cat and birds inside the house.
Ordinary people live in a big house in America.
I recommend you to visit an American family.
Then you will realize that most Japanese houses are tiny, like a cat's
