So about a week before my trip, a girl overheard my friends and I talking about me going to Japan. She walked over to us and asked if it was true and if I could do her a huge favor. I asked her what the favor was and she went into a story of how her family just found out that her 11 year old cousin with leukemia will be having all treatment cutoff the following Wednesday. She told me that she’s had people from around the world take pictures in front of cool places/monuments with a piece of paper saying “Team Alexis” on it so that she could put it all together into a collage for her cousin, Alexis’ Birthday. I of course said yes, took down her email address, and promised I would send her a picture from Japan. This is that picture. Me standing in front of The Rokuon-Ji Temple in Kyoto, also known as The Golden Pavilion. Team Alexis.
