Well I made it to Japan in one piece, kind of. The plane ride was terrible, really, really terrible. I flew from Boston to Atlanta, GA (2 hours) then from Atlanto to Tokyo (14 hours) then had a 5 hour layover in Tokyo before flying to Nagoya (1 hour) and then ending with a 50 minute car ride to Okazaki. I was very tired at the end of the trip let me tell you. But I made it
My roomate's name is Cindy. She is from Taiwan and both her Japanese and English are very good. I was quite happy about this. I live in a apartment block with other Yamasa Students in a very quiet part of town. It's nice that it's quiet but it is very far away from everything. Pictures forthcoming soon!
