Celestial Japan

The first completely Japan made satellite was launched this Thursday from Kourou in French Guiana. It will broadcast TV and provide other services to Japan and surrounding countries. It is nice that the Land of the Rising Sun can build its own satellites.

Meanwhile, Japan beat China in its quarter final in the Olympic ladies' football tournament, making up for the sadness that Dad and I felt when Norway and Sweden lost theirs. The USA is also in the semi finals, playing Japan there. I am half American, but as a Shiba Inu I always hope for Japan too, so I am not quite sure what team to hope for in this semi final. Mum and April, wholly American, hope for the USA.
