No more close family in Japan (Spanish)

Transcripts available in the following languages:

(Spanish) I went to Japan. At first there wasn’t anyone that I knew. Because my uncle, my aunt, my mother, who all were acquainted with my childhood -- I am now eighty-one years old -- they are all dead. Their children, my cousins, have their own families and they treated me well. But when I left Japan to come to Argentina they were still babies. There are no common memories; they treated me well but there wasn’t much to talk about, it is a little sad, don’t you think?
