DAY 07: 2/16 (Fri.) 
rainy, occasionally cloudy 
Visit Federal Way City Hall, Police Department and Courthouse

We visited the city hall of Federal Way that morning.  We first take a quick look in the registration office of the city, and then visited the police department in the same building. We had Ann, an 18-year-old girl in the explorer unit, as our tour guide, and she kindly answered our questions about the police work at the department as well as showing us aournd. It was a very interesting experience to look around.

We next visited the Federal Way Municipal Courts, which is also in the same building as the city hall.  We met Judge Larson there, and he kindly talked about his job there.  Judge Larson was so kind that he let us put on a gown for a judge and take pictures with him.  We had never been to a courthouse in Japan, so it was very interesting.

We came back to the study center in the afternoon, and spent the afternoon class learning how to write a postcard to Japan and telling Laura about holidays in Japan.
