Ana Alcantara was my second ever guest, and she was very generous with her time, and the stories she shared about her life in Japan. I know there are quite a few new listeners out there, so this is a little throwback for the Christmas break — find out about Ana’s life in Japan and how her journey has allowed her to learn about herself, and to build a family of great friends in the Land of the Rising Sun.

We’ll be back with brand new content on January 15th. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
