A couple quick sketches from an jElementary visit before I had to bolt off to a second shift somewhere else.

These jKids don't hold back and level you with enthusiasm. Some struggle to contain their excitement, almost bursting from the effort. It's really neat. I could do without all the hand-holding, though. If they're not trying to shake your hand (I think they do that because they're conditioned to think of interaction with westerners as necessarily involving hand-shaking) they'll want to hold your hand--either to lead you somewhere or just for the sheer heck of holding your hand.

That's cute and everything but GERMS!!!!!!!!!!!! Please understand, dear jKids, it's not you, it's me. And the millions of tiny micro-organisms on your tiny, little, delicate snot-drenched fingers.
