Lol, coincidentally, right after I fell in love with Japanese language and culture, I found out that my mother’s cousin who is a tourist guide in Turkey also got married to a Japanese woman. But we’re not that close so I couldn’t find the chance to talk to her much before I moved to Ottawa. Maybe everyone has a cousin who’s married to a Japanese person. :D
