Transcripts available in the following languages:

We always had to go back home and pick strawberries. Farming was more important than school, I think, in those days.

I*: Is that right? So what was your day like?

Oh, we went to school, and then when we come home, we go and pick strawberries 'til dark. And that's about it.

I: What about homework?

Yeah, we did some homework sometimes. [Laughs]

* "I" indicates an interviewer (Mary Ito).
