everyone, please meet junko.

i first took notice to this ad for english classes during my freshman year of college (back in 2001). i instantly thought the girl sort of looked japanese, and at the time i was working at a cafe in the west village with a girl from japan as well. my coworker's name was junko, and i thought "hey, the girl in the learn english ad looks like a junko, too!"

if you live in nyc and commute daily on the subways and buses of the city, i'm pretty sure that you'll see junko on a daily basis. just be on the lookout and the magic of junko will appear---sometimes, i even see her twice a day.

thank you junko for being a reliable pseudo nyc friend to me all these years and for helping a countless number of new yorkers learn english.
