Let me first say that hopefully I will procure internet for my home within a short while and then posts here will become much more frequent and, quite possibly, better written. And now to spew out random thoughts and experiences...

I just finished my first month of school here and to be honest I am pretty broke up about leaving my school.* I had really begun to feel comfortable at Sakagawa Chugakko and was getting to know the kids names and all. Damn it. Surely the new school will be good too; I hear they have a soccer club.

Also, in what is supposedly one of the lowest-crime rate countries in the world**, I have already experienced the devastation that lawlessness can inflict upon honest folk...somebody stole my bycycle. (Im really sorry steven....) It is a damn shame, even though my bike was pretty lowgrade, and I am sort of temporarily stuck relying on my friends, um, even more than usual. Hopefully it'll get replaced soon, maybe with a car or at least a nicer bike.

Oh, these are pictures of a little park area by the castle by the library. What? Oh, you don't have castles by your libraries???



*I switch Schools every month but just between two.

**I made that fact up though I think it is pretty true.

Yea. Sometimes bikes get stolen. I tried to get my old bike stolen but it was a rolling death trap.

Your sister pointed me to your blog. As one American in this crazy mixed up country to another, let me say Yokosou!

If you have any questions, drop me a line. I've been here for 4+ years now, so I hope I can help you in some way.
